|From the Collection of the National Maritime Museum|
There have to be some perks for the poor old devil who administers the Sepia Saturday Blog and one of the main perks is that I get to choose the weekly archive photograph which accompanies the call for posts. Those who know me will be not in the slightest surprised to see a pub featured. The pub in question is the Trafalgar Tavern in Greenwich and the photograph - which comes from the collection of the British National Maritime Museum - was taken in 1912. The pub, which was built in 1837, still stands today and is now a very plush establishment indeed.
Naval battles, pints of beer, shabby old pubs - there is plenty for the "themers" to work with for Sepia Saturday 66. But remember, you don't have to follow the theme. All you need do is to share your old photographs with the rest of us by posting on or near Saturday 19th March 2011 and linking your post to the Linky List below. If you are new to Sepia Saturday take a look at the brief explanation below, if you are an old friend all you need do is post, link and comment. Cheers!
SEPIA SATURDAY is a weekly meme which encourages bloggers to publish and share old images and photographs. All that is required is for contributors to post an old image (it doesn't have to be in sepia) and provide a few words in explanation. If you could provide a link back to the Sepia Saturday Blog and visit as many of the other contributors as you can, it would also be appreciated. There is no weekly theme, as such, but some people like to use the archive image published with the weekly call as a kind of theme. There is no requirement to adopt such an approach : the choice of image is entirely up to you. Once you have published your Sepia Saturday post, add a link to that post to the Linky List published each week and leave a comment to let everyone know you are joining in.
