This photograph entitled "President Wilson on a Speaking Tour" dates from 1919 and is part of the on-line collection of the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Archives made available via Flickr Commons. As always it will provide a variety of potential prompts for all those in search of a theme for Sepia Saturday 91. But what I like most of all about it is the contrasting action taking place within the photograph itself. The secret service man at the bottom left stares out of shot, the man at the top left keeps a watchful eye on his President, whilst the President and the admiring couple of the right make up a delightful triangle on interaction. Sometimes a good photograph can provide almost as much action as a short film! Whatever kind of action (or inaction) you are featuring in your old images, let them speak out by posting them on or around Saturday 10th September and linking them to the list below.
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.
