SEPIA SATURDAY 427 : 14 JULY 2018
CHILDREN : DOGS : PRAMS : STICKS

Ah lovely - a group of kids with a dog and a baby in a pram and some sticks and what looks like a double-barrelled shotgun!!! Those objects that turn up by chance in old photographs are always fascinating and can sometimes become the story in their own right. You can make your story about sticks, stones, prams or pooches - the choice is yours. Simply post your post on or around Saturday 14th July 2018 and add a link to the list below.

Here is what we have up next on Sepia Saturday.

SEPIA SATURDAY 425 : SATURDAY 30 JUNE 2018
Archives of the East Riding Of Yorkshire
Beverley United Band  1910
BANDS  :  MUSIC  :  INSTRUMENTS

There are some Sepia Saturday theme images which have a Sepian's name written all over them. No, I don't mean Beverley, but I do mean our good friend Mike Brubaker who has been a loyal supporter of Sepia Saturday ever since the beginning and who has fascinated, educated and entertained us over many years with his posts about bands and musicians. If ever a theme image was perfect for Mister Mike to work his magic on, this is it. Whoever you may be, if you want to participate in Sepia Saturday this week, post your post on or around Saturday 30th June and add a link to the list below.

And here are the next two Sepia Saturday theme images.

SEPIA SATURDAY 424 : SATURDAY 23 JUNE 2018
FARMS  :  AGRICULTURE  :  HARVEST

Everything is in chaos this week and therefore this is late and short. But when it is time to get the harvest in, it is all hands on deck and everything else has to be put on hold. Whilst you are waiting for the thresher to thresh (or do whatever threshers do) take a look at what is in the next field.
