We are now well on our way to our Sepia Saturday 100 celebrations and as the bus passes through Måholmen in Sweden it stops to pick up the band. We are lucky enough to have secured the services of the Lighthouse Workers' Band - the above photograph was taken by Anders Folkestadås in the first decade of the twentieth century - who will be playing for our entertainment at the Centenary Party. But before that comes along (Saturday 12 November), we have Sepia Saturday 99 to celebrate (on or around the 5th November 2011). For the themers among us there is a wealth of possibilities in the above image (which comes from the Flickr photostream of the County Archives in Sogn og Fjordane) so strike up the band and get your posts ready.
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.
