Grandma’s Pictures with Hollywood Celebrities Found in Thrift Store after Photo Album was Accidentally Donated

A thrift store in Mortsel, Belgium, stumbled upon a remarkable discovery when they found a photo album filled with personal pictures and memories, accidentally donated by someone. The album contained portraits of a woman with several renowned celebrities from the 90s, making it an intriguing find.

Despite recognizing some of the famous personalities, the woman’s identity remained a mystery until her name was discovered on a badge in one of the photographs. The woman was identified as Maria Snoeys-Lagler, a former member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), an organization of journalists and photographers reporting on the entertainment industry.
