"Look Up" said the photographer and at least two of the boys (yes, it appears they are boys) did exactly that. The photograph was taken outside a school in Connemara in Ireland by a certain Major Ruttledge-Fair in the 1890s and it now forms part of the collection of the National Library of Ireland. As well as being a charming image, it provides a multitude of potential prompts for the "themers" among our ranks (you really don't need me to identify them). Whatever the theme - or indeed the lack of theme - just publish your post on or around Saturday 22nd October 2011 and add your name to the linky list below. The rest of us will look up your contributions with interests.
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.
