A recent Facebook post was shared more than 200,000 times across social media depicting that a bridal wedding gown which got lost from a town of Morham in the East Lothian region of Scotland when Kleen Cleaners in Edinburgh closed down permanently as a result of bankruptcy last year, has now been found.
The dress belonged to the great grandmother of Tess Newall from the 1870s. The 29 year old wore the dress in June 30, 2016 when she was married to Alfred Newall.
“My parents received a phone call this afternoon from the landlord of the property where the dry cleaners is, whose nephew had read about the dress,” She posted an update this week saying the dress was found “in a crumpled heap” at the closed shop.
“He really searched and he found a pile of old lace which he realised was what he thought was the dress. My parents went straight there and were just overjoyed and couldn’t believe it was the dress, not cleaned, and still with its ticket,” Newall told BBC
She said she has planned to have the dress cleaned, but she can’t let it out of her sight.
