Sepia Saturday : Week 51


Having whizzed past its' 50th birthday, Sepia Saturday is now motoring towards its' centenary. I thought I would take us there by featuring some of the many archives of old images that are now available. As image collections throughout the world are digitized, a rich and fascinating collection of historic images is available to everyone. Our example this week comes from my local image archives - the Kirklees Image Archive here in Huddersfield Yorkshire. Whilst I am starting near to home, my visits to image archives over the coming weeks will take me on a tour of the world.

Wherever your images are from, why not share them on Sepia Saturday 51 which will take place on or around Saturday 27 November 2010. Share the image and share the story by adding your link to the list below.

Thought I'd share some 'sepia snow' seeing as we've yet to get what the weatherman forecast.

Alan, how do you get permission to use the archive photos? Or is copying and pasting to a blog with no commercial use OK?

Alan Burnett said...

Hi Bob, The situation does vary from archive to archive but generally speaking you are free to use low resolution images on a cut and paste basis as long as it is for non-commercial purposes. Archives normally like you to credit the source. To be on the safe side it is always best to check the rules for each archive. Alan

Happy to once again to be able to post.

Thanks Alan for hosting this. It's very special and I look forward to reading each post each week. Pains me when I miss it.

Bob asked my question and your gave the answer. Good deal. I love that picture your posted. I am learning how to use Picnik.com to enhance my photos. I tried to dress mine up a little today.

Thank you for posting the link to the archive. It's too late to look at it tonight but I'll check it out tomorrow or early next week.

I am back. I seem to keep finding new things to share and they are repeats but better views of the past.

Finally finished the post for Finding Eliza.
