Sepia Saturday 37

Last week, the delightful Marilyn from New Zealand (My Magpie Collection) gave us a Sepia Saturday post which featured her grandfather (George Richard Parsons).  There was a wonderful sepia photograph, a full and fascinating account of his life, and as an additional bonus, even his pastry recipe. It was a classic Sepia Saturday post and one which I very much enjoyed reading. But I don't think I have come across one I haven't enjoyed in all the weeks I have been hosting Sepia Saturday. And remember, the photographs don't have to be sepia : as I said to someone last week, sepia is a state of mind and not just a colour.

The recipe for our continued pleasure is an easy one. Just post an old photograph, tell us about it and add a link to the post on the list below. Sepia Saturday 37 will take place on or around Saturday 21st August. Everyone is invited.

Allen, I just wanted to stop by and tell you how much I appreciate Sepia Saturdays and your role in organizing them. I have learned so much and been transported through so many family histories. It's truly a joy. Thank you!

Hi Alan, thank you for Sepia Saturday; I too thoroughly enjoy Marilyn's posts and naturally all the other interesting family sagas.
The sepia photo of her grandfather is particularly beautiful.

This week I have an adorable little boy and girl dressed in their finest. It was purchased a few weeks ago at an estate sale. I can only imagine little boys today standing still wearing what this little fellow had to wear.

Thanks Alan for hosting this fun event.

I would like to thank you for your very kind words and for having my grandfather's photo in this weeks Sepia Saturday header. I do appreciate your Sepia Saturday blog and of being able to take part in it. I find everyone's entry so interesting and enjoy reading each one. I have a small piece about my mother-in-law and her sisters this week, a little in sight into their childhood.
