Sepia Saturday : Week 52


If you recall, last week I set out from West Yorkshire on a virtual tour of World Image Archives. This week I have reached Glasgow and I am stopping off at the Glasgow City Council's Mitchell Library, or rather its digital counterpart "Virtual Mitchell". My chosen image dates from 1939 and shows a group of shops in Kilmarnock Road. Several people last week asked about the copyright implications of using archive images in Blogs. Most collections will have advice on copyright issues on their sites and if not an inquiry normally brings a rapid response. In most cases public collections will be happy for you to use material as long as it is for a non-profit making site and the source is acknowledged. This was the case with "Virtual Mitchell" and I thank them for their co-operation.

Sepia Saturday 52 will take place on or around Saturday 4th December 2010. You can join in by posting your images and text and linking them to the list below.

Great picture of Glasgow Alan - bet it doesn't look quite like that now.

Just uploaded my Sepia Saturday offering.

Gosh what a great picture. They were my favoured car. All the cars today look-alike compared to the cars back then. You knew instantly what they were. Is this an M.G.? That is my guess anyway.

It is still thick of snow outside and temperatures in Yorkshire fell to -19c last night. I need summer, I need sun, and I need a sepia sea. So off to Blue Anchor.

Shops and cars looked vastly different, I like it, I am very nostalgic.

That is a marvelous photo. It is an amazing thing to see it such clear detail. I am thinking I need to regroup my blog so that it is in the sections to keep the mom's side and the dad,s side separated from each other. Believe you and me, I don't know how to do it without creating two blogs. That is not going to happen, never mind.

Okay, last episode, methinks, of the Blumenfeld saga is posted!
