Sepia Saturday 76 : Saturday 28 May 2011

Image : Powerhouse Museum Collection via Flickr
I have a slightly odd archive photograph for you this week. It comes from the digital archives of the Powerhouse Museum, Sidney. Australia and it has the appropriate title "Portrait view of child wearing a sun hat with a dog and toy cat".  If you look carefully it would appear that there is a toy dog as well, so perhaps the title should be amended. It was probably taken by the Australian photographer Arthur Phillips around 1890, and it is the original glass negative that is in the Powerhouse Collection. Odd or not, there is plenty for the "themers" amongst us to get their teeth into (if you will pardon the expression). For the rest - post what you will - as long as it is old it is sure to be interesting. Sepia Saturday 76 will take place on or around Saturday 28th May.
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.

A bit early again this week, but bank holiday weekend promises to be a bit manic so though it better to post early than miss it completely. HAve selected 'cats' from the many themes offered up this week.

Cats? Dogs? Don't have any of those. How about some pigeons? How about lots of pigeons?

No themer, as usual, but a tribute to a wonderful ex-US Navy man that I loved dearly.

My blog has 'Bloggers Blight' - my followers have disappeared and the number of comments getting through to me have dropped off alarmingly from this and other blogs I contribute to. I am still getting the same number of visitors each day. From Sepia this week I have had no comments from anyone after Tony. Will any of you who posted later tell me if you have had problems leaving comments. Thanks

This weekend I'm off the Sepia Saturday theme and will use my Dad's suggested theme - Decoration Day.
