The Wedding Photo at Ground Zero

Lesley University assistant professor Elizabeth Stringer Keefe came into the possession of a wedding photo that was picked up in the rubble of the World Trade Center after the buildings collapsed on 9/11. Every year for 13 years, she posted the photo on the internet, hoping to find the owner of the picture. This year she posted it on Facebook and Twitter.

Keefe told the story to Boston magazine.

She had hoped this year would be the year, but as the anniversary of the September 11 tragedy came and went, still, she heard nothing back.

“I have always said to myself about the photo that I try not to think about what the story behind it is, and that I just want to get the photo back,” said Elizabeth Stringer Keefe.

However, the photograph went viral in Twitter and then on reddit, and the next day, Fred Mahe saw it -and responded.

In fact, it was Mahe’s picture. It was on his desk on the 77th floor of Tower Two. Read the entire story of the wedding photo at Boston magazine.  -via Buzzfeed
