Apple Photos thumbnails missing

Last Modified: 2015-07-23
The machine is running Yosemite and Photos.
The original database was created on Iphoto but since Photos upgrade most of my pictures are showing as a square.

I have tried to repair the database by holding command + option keys however I can't restore the images.

Can anyone advise please?
