The photograph shows Maurice Skinner, 69, who used to attend Orwell's Church of England School, with his friends at a May-pole dance in Orwell.
The picture was taken in 1951 in the church grounds when the school was enjoying a May-pole dance.
Mr Skinner, however, said he cannot remember who took the photograph.
