Sepia Saturday 479, 20th July 2019


Now here's a thought. What is going on in this photograph? Why is there a double bass leaning against the side of a tent? Why is there someone kissing a girl? What is on the mind of the chap in the striped jumper? Perhaps the most troubling thought of all is, how can it be that a photograph from the 1980s is now history! Whatever thoughts come into your mind when you view this week's Sepia Saturday prompt, link them to one of your old photographs, include it in a post, and post your post on or around Saturday 20th July 2019 and add a link to the list below.

And if you have time for a second thought, take a look at next week's Sepia Saturday prompt.

Sepia Saturday 478 : Saturday 13th July 2019


I could never be a musician. I would be due to play in a little classical string trio, expected to sound my first crotchet or whatever they are called - and I would be late. The other players would be standing around, rosining up their bows, and I would be down the street, catching up on doing something I should have done three days earlier. Like putting up the Sepia Saturday prompt image! Once again, apologies for being late, hopefully it will not leave you out of tune. Whatever tune you choose to play, play it with an old photograph on or around Saturday 13th July 2019 and then add a link to the list below.


Whilst you are waiting for the other players to start, take a look at what awaits you in Sepia Saturday in the future.

Sepia Saturday 477 : 6 July 2019


This week we have a line of rather nice cars, gathered together in not very nice circumstances. The cars were seized in 1942 by the Canadian Government and were originally the property of Canadian citizens of Japanese origins. For our purposes, they are cars, a line, a road, a telegraph pole, a wet Thursday afternoon - or whatever visual clue you can find in this archive photograph to form the basis of your Sepia Saturday 477 post. When you have identified a potential theme, and posted your post, add a link to the list below. And whilst you are waiting for the motorcade to set off, take a look at the next couple of Sepia Saturday theme images.

Sepia Saturday 476 : 29th June 2019


Gone fishing, instead of just a-wishing. What better way to spend a sunny afternoon than doing a spot of fishing. And where better to do it than at the Old Weir in Killarney, Ireland? When you are fishing through your old photographs, keep an eye open for fish, chips, boats, nets, rivers, rods and people sitting on stone walls. Whichever old photograph you find, feature it in a post, and then post your post on or around Saturday 29th June 2019, and add a link to the list below.

Whilst you are waiting for a bite, take a look at what is around the next bend of the river.

Sepia Saturday 475 : Saturday 22 June 2019


This wonderful photograph from the US National Archives dates back to 1910 and features three young workers on a break from the "Bleach Room". As far as themes are concerned, you could have threesomes, flat caps and sitting on fences, rivers, railings .... or whatever you spot in this image that lights a spark and reminds you of one of your old photographs. Then all you need to do is to post a post on or around Saturday 22nd June 2019, and add a link to the list below.

And whilst we are having a break from work, why not take a look at our next two theme images:-

Sepia Saturday 474 : 15th June 2019


We are off to church this Sepia Saturday. It doesn't have to be this particular country church in Sharps County, Tennessee - it can be any old church, and old congregation, any old leaning telegraph pole, or - as usual - any old photograph. Just post your post on or around Saturday 15th June 2019 and add a link to the list below. And whilst we are waiting for the preacher to start, why not take a look at the theme images awaiting us over the next few weeks.
