Sepia Saturday 176 : 11 May 2013


Oh I remember all those chemistry lessons at school : the tubes, the flasks, the Bunsen Burners, the extraordinary smells, the unfathomable formulae. Oh I remember school : the wooden desks, the inky fountain pens, the smell of school dinners, the unfathomable formulae. And if you don't want to go back to school with your Sepia Saturday 176 contribution, you can always feature glass bottles or glass partitions or glass windows. It's Sepia Saturday of course, and you can feature almost anything you want - all you need to do is to post your post - on or around Saturday 11th May 2013 - and then link it to the linky list below. But before you light the gas flame of your imagination, why not take a look at what is to come in the next two Sepia Saturdays.

177 : Sepia Saturday 177 stays with kids, but these kids are upside down, wrong way around and all over the place. Kids have always climbed and swung and proud parents have always taken photographs of their acrobatic endeavours.

178 : Sepia Saturday faces up to the challenge of featuring the face. It doesn't matter if it is young or old, male or female, black or white .... as long as it is sepia.


For now, let us concentrate on Sepia Saturday 176. It's time to mix together all the ingredients of a great blog post - it is time to distill the results into a sepia compound of archival pleasure.

Can't believe it's Friday and I'm second on the list. What's wrong here?

Hazel Ceej said...

Found a classroom with glass windows, wooden desks and wooden chairs. Happy Weekend, Sepians!

Bob Scotney said...

The best years of your life?

Wendy said...

I love Kristin's comment because I was thinking the same thing! Anyway, I have a little story about my great aunt who was a teacher.

ScotSue said...

Some school day memories - it was a happy time.

Mike Brubaker said...

A musical school photo from me that I think technically fits into the theme.

Nigel Aspdin (Derby, UK) said...

Just in time!

I'm in and a day early across the sea here; as to the theme, this week, please consider, I have stretched or twisted, there is some school in there, just not chemistry...

Kathy said...

I didn't stick with the theme this week.

Doug Peabody said...

I found a treasure trove of old sepia photos. Try Boston Public Library's Flickr collection.

Brett Payne said...

So I wasn't the only one a little late this week.

I went with chemistry of another kind. Looking forward to getting around to everyone this week by hook or by crook!

Sometimes you just have to go with your gut and throw caution to the wind. If you build it they may or may not come.

Better late than never

Eugenia O'Neal said...

Had to dig for my photo but finally found something I could use!

Alex Daw said...

I always forget to post a comment here...sorry.

Dakota Boo said...

Sorry, my homework is a bit late this week.

Sean Bentley said...

Well, sorry to say it's a rerun, but perhaps one that no Sepia folks have seen. Things have been too crazed this week to assemble a fresh post - bringing my 90-year-old mum to live with us since she's too much for the retirement home to handle!

Karen S. said...

Finally, I got my post in and it's still Saturday! I will be sure to visit all your posts by the weekend's end. We are celebrating Mother's Day this weekend and things are quite busy! Oh and I think welcome back Alan is in order too!

Dakota Boo said...

Hopefully Alan will not ask me to stay behind after class, but this is my second submission this week.
