|Photograph : San Diego Air And Space Museum Archives|
Holiday time is approaching and in a few weeks time I will be making my way down to Heathrow and climbing inside some sophisticated tin can that - hopefully - will ferry me to the other side of the pond. I trust that it will be slightly more sophisticated than the contraption captured in this photograph of a bi-plane. The pilot is Glenn Luther Martin who went on to establish the Glenn L Martin Aviation Company in 1912. The picture, which is undated, comes from the collection of the San Diego Air and Space Museum and forms part of their collection which is available on Flickr Commons. We don't leave until early June, so I still have time to put together a batch of calls covering the period I will be away : more details of that nearer the time. This particular picture provides plenty of scope for the "themers" this week - planes, newspapers and ridiculous hats all spring to mind. Whether you are a "themer" or just someone who wants to share an old photograph, Sepia Saturday 74 will be boarding at Gate 14 on or around Saturday 14th May 2011. Please have your passport and boarding card ready.
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.
