A time capsule stuffed full of old photos has been discovered in an eerie abandoned house which has sat untouched and been left to rot for decades.

An urban explorer, known as Urbex Muse, revealed the contents of the suitcase on her Instagram after wandering the eerie former home of a border which she has dubbed 'grandma's house.'

The black and white photos appear to be of weddings and servicemen from around World War 1, going to the early 1920s.

One photo appears to be of a triple wedding as three grooms and three brides were all photographed together with their bouquets.

In another, there appears to be a handsome headshot of a man in a soldiers uniform who can also be seen in the other pictures with a young woman, leading viewers to believe he was the husband of the previous owner of the house.

There also appears to be packets of unprocessed camera film left inside the suitcase – it remains a mystery what memories they hold.

In other photos from around the home, items seem to be perfectly preserved despite being left to collect dust for decades.

Books are still on the shelves and an old TV is still there in seemingly perfect condition.

On the coffee table, there appears to be a tray with cutlery and a plate left out as someone had just finished dinner before the house was left.

"This home was once bursting at the seams with memories of the old couple that resided here," Urbex Muse captioned.

"These reminders lingered in every corner, from the nicknacks they collected to the priceless antiques left behind.

"We even stumbled across grandmas original zucchini bread recipe, which I ended up making and can confirm is amazing."

It is unclear what happened to the owners of the property that has been untouched by time.

But fans of the urban explorer want to try and track down their descendants to get their piece of family history returned to them.

A fan asked: "Are you allowed to take things from abandoned places. like all those pics to find the right owner of them?"

Another added: "This is so sad, I have tons of pictures from my family even though I never met any of them, but we try to keep the stories that go to each picture so that it be passed down."

But others seemed more fascinated and yet broken-hearted by the beauty of the house and how the property has managed to go unscathed for so long.

A commenter said: "The vibes in these abandoned "granny houses" is always so peaceful, you can feel the love and good memories tinged with the sadness that the family has left it all behind for whatever reason."

Another added: "It kind of broke my heart to see everything left like that. Frozen in time. Like what happened? One event led up to them just leaving their home like that. Defiantly very cool. Thank you for respecting their home."

A third said: "It breaks my heart to think of the history and people that lived in these houses, home is something, like so intimate and full of personality, and then when the person is gone it turns into nothing, just a bunch of pieces in time and space."
