Sepia Saturday 69 : 9th April 2011

Photograph : Library of Congress via Wikimedia
Everyone seems to have enjoyed the archive image used for Sepia Saturday 68, although it has to be said that the ladies seemed a little more appreciative that the men. To reset the balance, I am using an image of one of my favourite women this week - the film pioneer Mary Pickford. For the theme followers, there is enough in this image to launch a thousand posts. For those who wish to just post their own choice of old photographs, that is fine - and you can even use the camera as a link. Sepia Saturday will take place on or around Saturday 9th April 2011. Everyone is invited.
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.

My post has a Hollywood and Mary Pickford connection.

Wonderful of Pickord. A strong woman with goals. Good challenge. I give you George Kallman's mother, Lorena Aina Beck.

Marilyn said...

I have posted a favourite photo of my great grandmother Annie.

I return from our trip with ideas, kind of an extension of the film making if you really stretch my theme! Love the Pickford photo

Brett Payne said...

Mine is only connected by a rather long stretch, but I hope you'll all enjoy it as much as I know I'm going to enjoy yours.

Ah, my post has a photo of a camera, best I can do. :-)

Mike Brubaker said...

Not on theme this weekend, though there is a small camera malfunction in my photo.

Anna said...

This is a wonderful photo, but Saturday is my mum's birthday, so I'm showing off some pictures of her this week. We could really stretch it and use Mary Pickford's costume as a theme, we do have Scottish ancestry.

I have some posed photos on my post this week.

Howard said...

I haven't followed any theme this Saturday, but I hope my postcard of Elliott School is of some interest.

I took the theme as amazing women and found an old photo of my beloved sister. Myself, my sister and brother and mom, that was our little family.

Mary is a beauty! My post is about Shirley Temple and the 1937 movie Heidi. Thank you for hosting, and have a wonderful week!

No Mary Pickford, but a girl with curls all the same.

dee-burris said...

Posting a newly discovered family photo this week. (At least it was new to me.)

Mary was a beauty, wasn't she?

TICKLEBEAR said...

a total memer, and for good reasons!!!

Jinksy said...

My little women are in front of the camera today, stars in their own right, I think? LOL

Alan Burnett said...

Mine is up - and yet again I am slavishly following my own theme. But from a generation early than Mary.

Karen S. said...

What a lovely woman you gave in return after last weeks handsome model/worker! I touched on Mary as well, but have in my collection some other stars of that era...they never married any directors so their lives went in other directions later in life! Great theme Alan!

Mine's updating a previous SS post but I'm not sure if adding 1928 passenger list from Liverpool to Chile counts - there are photos too though :-)

whowerethey said...

I forgot that I had originally intended to post the third to last photo from the mystery photo album. I just added it above and I thank you all who have visited the photographer's photo. I got so excited when I realized I could match the theme for once that I forgot to link my original intended post. Oops! :-)

Sorry for the radio silence, I've been short on old photos! However this week I'm moving the focus up a few decades and looking at the 1970s...old enough I hope!
