You can't get away from the Olympics these days and here on Sepia Saturday we are still running around all over the place. Most people run for exercise and for the good of their health, but there are some people who occasionally need to run as part of their jobs. Our archive picture this week features a Library of Congress picture from the Bain Collection entitled "Police Running Race" and dating from between 1910 and 1915. For those who like to follow a theme, there are several on offer : policemen, running, games, jumping and men in trilby hats stood around watching other people do all the work. As always, the choice is yours: and if you prefer you could avoid the athletics and avoid the Olympics and make up your own theme. Just post your posts on or around Saturday 4 August 2012, link the post to the list below and race off and visit as many other Sepia posters as you can manage.
If you like to plan ahead, here is a sneak preview of the next two Sepia Saturday themes:
That gives you something to think about, but for now just concentrate on the race ahead.
