Sepia Saturday 39

The ability to click and enlarge is often a vital attribute for Sepia Saturday posts. These old photographs of ours not only contain a wealth of detail that can be examined with the precision and care of an archaeologist, the older photographs often require careful scrutiny in order to distinguish essential elements. Last week's delightful post from Patricia Felmy (Stories, Yarns and Tales of Olde) was a perfect example. The post had pictures of two young ladies, dressed almost identically and taken in what appears to be the same studio. You needed to click and enlarge to realise that they were two quite separate people, Pat's Great Grandmother Mary, and her Great, Great Aunt Elizabeth. Like so many of out posts, we got some added bonuses with the images : in this case a recipe for dandelion cordial.

If you have anything you would like us to click and enlarge, why not submit it to Sepia Saturday. Just link your post to the Linky List below. Sepia Saturday 39 will take place on or around Saturday 4th September 2010.

It is interesting to be able to check out the dresses of yesteryear and also the facial expression. My memories this week are not "that old" I still smell the flowers!

I too am posting early (depending on one's position relative to the Dateline). Have a good weekend, everyone (long or otherwise).

If you love railroads, steam locomotives, or trains I think you'll enjoy this post. A snapshot taken of a famous locomotive at the 1939 World's Fair in New York city purchased at an estate sale.

My post is a tad off the wall -- but it does contain something to click and enlarge.

This week, I've re-posted something from last November. Hopefully, it'll be new to most of the Sepia Saturday visitors and contributors.

Oops ... somehow this week's post ended up on #38, too. Can you please delete that, Alan? Thanks!

More on Great Grandma this week, although not much to enlarge. Less eye strain that way.

Alan the second entry is now the right page. Delete the first one if you can. Doesn't matter too much, but I don't want to discourage dialogue with anyone. Thanks.
