Instead of letting his photo albums collect dust, this Internet-savvy senior took to Instagram to share his vintage photos online. At age 85, Rex Redstone is the oldest known Instagrammer in the UK, which has earned him the charming moniker of 'Instagram-Pa.'

Rex knows that photos are just not shared the way they used to be and consulted Barclay Digital Eagle to learn how to get started on this social sharing platform. The Digital Eagle programme is designed to introduce new Internet users to apps and services that will enhance their daily lives. The program teaches how to keep in touch with friends and family over Instagram, Facebook and Skype, as well as other valuable skills like online shopping and money management.

Rex is new to the photo-sharing platform, but he's already hashtagging and posting selfies like a pro. Stats for Selfie-Taking Seniors Trending: Older & Buzzing
