HOUSTON (WTWO/WAWV) — Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology graduate, Anthony Korzeniewski, says he found someone’s baby photo while disassembling his former college couch.
Korzeniewski reached out to MyWabashValley.com in hopes of finding the owner of the baby photo.
Korzeniewski says when he lived in Terre Haute and attended Rose-Hulman, he bought a couch from a local yard sale.
“The fall of my sophomore year, 2009, I was just out biking, found a yard full of furniture seemingly out of nowhere, I just remember it was on 8th Avenue.” Korzeniewski said.
The couch became a “fixture in his dorm room” and a gathering place for his friends, Korzeniewski recalled.
“I liked having the big, crazy, loud vibrant thing,” he said.
Once he graduated from Rose and relocated to Houston, Texas, the couch lasted a few more years before it started collecting dust in storage. Korzeniewski then disassembled the couch to find some long-lost belongings.
“I started finding things, among them was that little picture, which I just thought was too interesting not to share, because who knows how long it’s been in there.”
He also found a souvenir coin relic from Gatlinburg, some candy-like wrappers and plastic toy glasses.
“None of that really matters, but this is a person, and I don’t know who that is,” he said. “Based on the writing it could have been ’70s or ’80s.”
