Sepia Saturday 79 : Saturday 18 June 2011

George Eastman House Collection via Flickr Commons
I am still away : and when you get to see this call I should be somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. I had a quick look to see if I could find any archive photographs of the Atlantic and then realised that the ocean looks like the ocean : wherever it may be and whenever it was captured on film. The best I could come up with is this photograph taken in 1905 on Atlantic City Beach, Hopefully, by the time Sepia Saturday 79 comes around (on or about Saturday 18th June 2011) the sun will be shining wherever you may be. But remember, too much time in the sun is not good for you, so step inside for a few moments and add a post to Sepia Saturday. Sun or sand, beach or ocean blue - or something completely unrelated. It matters not as long as it is old.
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.

I love how dressed up they are on the sand, must have been very ungraceful trudging thru sand in those boots! Love it though

Miles from a beach in Michigan,but I managed to find some pictures from England.

And the further back you look, the more ridiculous the beachware got.

Little Nell said...

An eternity of swimwear on parade here, just made for frolicking in the foam!

Those sure don't look like sunhats, and let's hope it wasn't very windy.

Wonderful photo! I don't know which part of their outfits I like more, and loving that cheeky flash of stockinged ankle.

I've just discovered you via Little Nell, and quite by chance had just published a post with a photograph perfect for this theme.

Tattered and Lost said...

To go along with the theme, and apparently every other like minded participant, I give you folks having fun in the sun in a variety of beachwear.

Found you some pictures of the ocean - but suspect you'd rather it didn't look quite like this for your crossing.

I love those ladies' outfits and the swings.

Not a themer this week. I have a family reunion for a 100+ year old photo going to family that just could not wait!

Howard said...

Some beach photos and a wrecked pier from 1913 from me this week.

Well my post involves two ladies as is has for the previous 5 weeks. Thanks everyone for follow this series. The photos aren't sepia toned but they are olde.

Mike Brubaker said...

A wonderful choice for a theme Alan, and I can offer the music that the two young ladies are swinging to. Happy summer to all!

Great photo, Alan. I'm not sharing a beach photo this week but, instead, celebrating a birthday. Happy Saturday to you all.

Karen S. said...

Celebrating father's for Father's Day! I love the ladies on the swings showing off their well turned ankles.

Kristin said...

Nothing to do with the theme. Happy father's day to my husband, Jim. Who knew??

Kristin said...

Had to post another link as the first one seemed to be a dead end.
