Hi - I'm not normally a poster, but this might be useful for someone!
A friend of mine rented a car in Lancashire (UK) and found two memory cards in it. They were re full of photos taken at Manchester Airport. They are definitely A.NET-style material, so perhaps someone knows someone who has lost their cards.
My friend returned them to the car rental company, who seem to be refusing to contact previous renters of the car (data protection act or some such drivel – means they can’t be bothered), but he copied the photos first – now he’s passed them to me.
Unfortunately the date wasn't set on the camera, so I don't know when they were taken, but I do know the camera make, lens type, and so on, so if anyone wants to claim them, let me know the details, and we can arrange to get them back to their rightful owner.

Classy thing to do, trying to find the rightful owner of the cards. I am a little confused though. You copied the photos first and the rental company now has the cards? It would be nice to get the copies of the photos but I would really want my cards back!

Firstly, I agree - congratulations for posting.
I have a hunch you may already know this, given what you say about the data you do know. But, just in case.... if you open up a photo on the computer, then right click with the mouse, go down to 'Properties' at the bottom of the menu, then go to the 'Summary' tab and, if necessary to the 'Advanced' bit of that, you will get all the EXIF data, and that may very well give you the date and time the photo was taken.
