It is true to say of my old family photographs - and from what I have seen over the years, the same is true of most other Sepians (I love that word but it was invented by Ticklebear and not by me) - that photographs from the first half of the twentieth century either feature one's relatives in their Sunday best, or in their overalls. Well so often in Sepia Saturday we have turned our spotlight on the Sunday finery, so this week I want to focus the spotlight on the humble overalls (and, workwear of all types). Now regular Sepians who are members of the Royal Houses of Europe - and there are several of them, aren't there your majesty? - may have trouble finding a working relative, but I suspect the rest of us won't find it too much of a challenge. And you can always interpret my archive theme image - which is from the collection of the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, Australia - in any way that you want to. All you need do is to post your post on or around Saturday the 8th December 2012 and add a link to the list below.
And as we approach the festive season, the advanced warning of what is to come might be particularly useful. As usual, I have made SS157 a Christmas Call rather than focussing on a particular day so people can have maximum flexibility during this busy time. The normal weekly Sepia Saturday service will resume with SS158 on Saturday 5th January 2013. Here are the next two archive images :
But all that is in the future. For the moment, roll up your sleeves, put your overalls on and get working hard with your contribution to Sepia Saturday 155.
