SEPIA SATURDAY 100 : 12 November 2011


So here we are at last : the 100th Sepia Saturday. The theme - if you need a theme - is 100 and you can interpret this as you want. It might be an image taken 100 years ago, it might be a re-post of your favorite Sepia Saturday post from the first 100, it might be an old picture of a pigeon! You might want to stray away from any hint of a theme and tell us about your Great Aunt Ruth-Annie : Sepia Saturday has always been of an anarchic frame of mind, so as long as there is an old image in there somewhere, you are welcome to the party. And let's make it a memorable party and extend an invitation to Sepia Saturday posters old and new. Spread the word so we can get as many participating as possible. Just post your post any time between now and the 12th and link it by using the list below. I have prepared a smaller version of the special Sepia Saturday 100 logo in case you want to include it in your post, feel free to download it and use it as you will. I look forward to reading all your sepia posts - and I look forward to hosting the next 100 sepia Saturdays.  Best sepia wishes to you all, from Alan


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. Each week the call for contributions incorporates an old archive image and many people like to use this as a theme for their weekly posts. You will need to use your imaginations to identify you own theme from the provided image, and you can always choose to abandon any theme and just post an image that is special 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've had to get mine in early due to pressure of work, but it's a monster of a double article, worthy of the centennial celebration, I hope.

Kristin said...

I finished mine and couldn't wait any longer to post a collage of 100 photos of my father. This year marks the 100th anniversary of his birth in 1911.

Happy Birthday to us!

I'm going to be on the road on over the weekend, so I posted a tad early. Congratulations on the birthday, Alan!

Kat Mortensen said...

I'm early! (Will wonders never cease?) Have my sister-in-law coming for a visit this weekend. Family, eh! Hope you enjoy my post.

I have a double connection to the 100 theme with a "Century of Progress" and 100 images.

I am in with a 100th birthday celebration.

Thank you so much for Sepia Saturday Alan, and to everyone for such interesting posts.

Congratulations on 100 Sepia Saturdays. I certainly have a grand post to celebrate this accomplishment!

Mike Brubaker said...

I've something appropriate for the weekend but not for the number 100, yet. Cheers and huzzahs all around for Alan and Kat, and the many friends of Sepia Saturday.

Mike Brubaker said...

Sorry for the last recursive link. The second one is correct for temposenzatempo.blogspot.com

jennyfreckles said...

Congratulations on an inspired idea. I read them but don't usually join in so I've dug deep and found a timely tribute.

Liz Stratton said...

I took a risk on this one. It is haunting me.

Nancy said...

Hooray for 100! Great job, Alan and Kat. With so many followers I wondered if there would be 100 participants this week (though I know it would have taken me weeks to look at all the posts). Thanks for keeping it going, Alan.

H said...

My first time, but I think I'll be back for more!

TICKLEBEAR said...

I feel 100 today - does that count? LOL

The Silver Fox said...

Congratulations! I finally did a new SS post m'self!

Kat Mortensen said...

I'll try and visit everyone over the next few days!
@ Jinksy - Never! 2x my age is 100; does that count?

Sheila @ A Postcard a Day said...

Happy 100th! I just about found a tie-in. I couldn't opt out this week of all weeks.

Janice said...

Wow, 100! Impressive!

Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy said...

Yay!!! 100 weeks; thanks so much for thinking this up and keeping it going. I have been here since Feb. and think that I've done around 30 posts or so.

You guys are all great, and I am so happy to be a part of this wonderful group of friends.

Not on theme this week, but wanted to get something up, more photo albums :)

barbara and nancy said...

Congratulations on the 100th. Quite an accomplishment. Thanks for sticking to it for so long. I haven't posted in a while but my sister, Nancy Javier(Ladies of the Grove), has been faithfully posting for the last several months. I never miss reading Sepia Saturday and I feel as if I know all of you and that we're friends. I hope you never get tired of this, Alan.

Well not on Theme, but I didnt want to miss out on being a part of this.

imagespast said...

Better late than never... again. Congratulations everyone on your fab contributions to Alan's 100h SS post. Look forward to the next 100, and cheers for your support, lovely peeps :-) Jo

viridian said...

I am participating for the first time, though I have dropped in before.

Tattered and Lost said...

Vacation and bandwidth issues have kept me away.

My post for the 100th anniversary is about what the world was on the verge of 100 years ago. We seem to be at the same place again. History just keeps repeating itself.

Mike Burnett said...

Sepia Saturday, an inspired idea. I'm too young, in Blogging terms, to recall its beginnings, but in the short time I've been involved I've come to appreciate what a wonderful tool it is for the exchange of the interesting. And, also for meeting some very articulate and imaginative people, some of whom are proving to be a lesson in how to tell a simple story and make it worth reading.

Thank you Alan, and thank you Kat.

I think I first started following Sepia Saturday somewhere in the 50's, so it's really great to see it reach 100. Keep up the great work. Alas I wasn't able to theme this week but have shared something nevertheless.

The Silver Fox said...

@Dakotaboo: You had internet in the 1950s? Wow, I'm impressed! ;-)

Nana Jo said...

I'm a wee bit late, but I'm up.

Mahl Wagner said...

At the Century of Progress there was a Midway building called the TEMPLE of PHRENOLOGY. It seems to have been located next to Ripley's Believe-it-or-not, a trained flea show, and a 2-headed baby...also near the Black Forrest Village. Is there a postcard of this? Many thanks, Mahl

Anglers Rest said...

A late contribution just added. Congratulations on the success of your meme!

Hated to miss last week for the big milestone. Just wanted to drop a line and congratulate you on the landmark post and thank you for the fun it is every Saturday. Keep up the great work!
