This has recently surfaced again on my Facebook feed, so I thought it worth a look.

My 80 year old mum had boxes of old photos soaked by the Boxing Day floods in Yorkshire and was devastated when she thought they'd be lost. She felt like her life's memories had been taken, and was extremely down. We've spent loads of time sorting and retrieving - most of the images are now fine or safe... and she's SO relieved and happy. Made a huge difference to her.

So I can appreciate just how valuable this initiative of Ricoh's must have been.

that's cool effort......having in mind how valuable even the simple family photos become after some years, capturing moments of one's life.....thumbs up Ricoh, for saving some of those 'memories' and returning them to people...
