15 Families Whose Photo Albums Hold Priceless Treasures

Usually, when people go through their old family photos, all they find are childhood or vacation snaps. But for some, it means coming across a pic of their great-aunt with Elvis Presley at the peak of his career. From simple fan meetings to pre-fame personal hangouts, people online are proud to display the rarest gems from their photo albums that feature all sorts of stars.

Bright Side took a deep dive into what might be Reddit’s most nostalgic community, OldSchoolCool, and rounded up celebrity encounters of the past that give some family albums a spark of fabulous.
