Our picture this week comes from the photographic archives of the State Library of Queensland, Australia and is entitled "Children enjoying a ride on the miniature railway at the Brisbane Ekka in 1948" The "Ekka" is the local name for the Brisbane Exhibition Grounds where exhibitions and other events have been held since the staging of the first Queensland Intercolonial Exhibition in 1876. Those Sepia Saturday participants who like a theme to follow can find prompts a-plenty in this image : trains, things in miniature, steam, days out and the ubiquitous hats of the age. Or you can ignore themes all together and just let us have an old image and some new thoughts. Whatever you decide to do, do it on or around Saturday the 5th May 2012, and then link your post to the list below.
For those who like to plan ahead here is a sneak preview of the next two call images.
But all that is for the future. For the time being just concentrate on SS 124 and don't be late because you won't want to miss the train.
