Local residents of Mortsel, Belgium were surprised — and starstruck — to find a treasure trove of old celebrity snapshots in a mysterious woman’s photo album. The album was found in Opnieuw & Co thrift store and initially, no one had any clue as to the identity of the woman in the photos

She was pictured with some of Hollywood‘s biggest stars, and not only that, but they were never-before-seen vintage photos, captured in the 90s. 

After much internet sleuthing, one eagle-eyed individual saw she was wearing an unique tag in one of the images, and discovered her to be former member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), Maria Snoeys-Lagler

The HFPA started as a small group of journalists covering entertainment news and grew to hold award ceremonies and eventually the Golden Globes.
