As soon as we realized he had left the camera on the train, we ran back to the train station, but the train was gone. Apparently, Lost & Found on the London Rail is not such a high tech department. The station master at Windsor called the station master at Oxford, who told him Lost & Found items were only returned to London (the origin of the train), once per week. And for that particular train that day was Monday. Unfortunately, we would be on a plane back to the US on Monday.
Well, there is a happy ending to the story. The camera finally ended up in Bristol, England and after six weeks of calling train stations and enlisting the help of a friend in London, the camera finally ended up back home with us this week. Pictures intact! Interestingly enough, after we got over our disappointment of losing the camera, we purchased a disposable camera at a gift shop at Windsor Castle--which is now lost. Anyway, here are the lost pictures from Michael's camera:
Waiting for the On/Off Bus outside the National Gallery off Trafalgar Square.
In the cab on the way to High Tea at The Ritz
Big Ben & Parliament from the On/Off Bus
The Tower of London
Horse Guard at Buckingham Palace
All four of us (a rare picture) outside our hotel at the Marriott Grosvenor Square.
