A 13-year-old US boy who bought a Polaroid camera at a garage sale has discovered a photograph inside of his late uncle he never met.

Kansas boy Addison Logan paid $1 for the old camera at a house more than a kilometre away from his grandmother's home, the Wichita Eagle reported.

When he removed the cartridge, he discovered a photograph of an 18-year-old man and his girlfriend, taken in 1978 or 1979.

Addison showed the picture to his grandmother, who immediately recognised the man as her son Scott, who died in a car accident in 1989, and his high school sweetheart Susan Ely.

Addison's father and Scott's brother Blake said he was "just shocked" by the discovery.

"The more time that passes, the more in disbelief I am," Mr Logan said.

"It's almost like he's reaching out to us, saying he's still with us."

The man who sold the Polaroid to Addison said he could not remember where he got the camera.

Scott Logan was killed in a car accident at the age of 28.

Another brother, Brian, died in a separate crash seven years earlier.
