Sepia Saturday 206 : 7 December 2013


For Sepia Saturday 206 - post your posts on or around 7 December 2013 - we are celebrating that great domestic institution : the apron. They can be flowered aprons, aprons dusted with bread flour, gear-oil coated aprons or any kind of apron you care to show us. Our theme image is called "Mother Of The Assembly Line" and comes from the Flickr stream of the US National Archives.

Before you rush off and put your aprons on, here is a glance into the future - the next two Sepia Saturday themes. As usual, our Christmas challenge will cover both Christmas and New Year and sepians can post their posts at any time over the festive season. Sepia Saturday will return to the normal weekly schedule with Sepia Saturday 209 on Saturday 4 January 2014


207 : Photos with strange compositions, passing cyclists, removal vans, tunnels (look carefully there is one there) - the choice is up to you.


208 : Celebrate Christmas with any festive themed image from the past

Before you go off to get your aprons, don't forget that the "Best Of Sepia Saturday" is now available. What better present to find beneath the tree on Christmas morning.

Man, I'm first again. I need comments on my photo mystery. Any help and suggestions greatly appreciated!

Back from my travels, but with heaps of jobs to do so I’m getting in early before I get sidetracked!

ScotSue said...

No aprons were to be found in my family photo collection, so I have diverted to a look at hairstyles - bobs, rolls and waves.

No aprons either...but a group photo of people I worked with many years ago, and in a way that has since been computerized so everything depicted in this photo has become an artifact (not me of course))

Few aprons in my photo boxes, but I couldn't get Lucy and Ethel off my mind from the first second I saw this photo. Happy Holidays to everyone!!

Jo Featherston said...

No serious workers in aprons from me either, just a couple of photos that fit the theme, more or less :-)

Howard said...

Alas, no aprons to be seen in my post.

I have had to be a bit philosophical this week.

Postcardy said...

I do have aprons.

Rosie said...

I found a man in an apron, (what a novelty) ha ha ha.

I too am going with men in aprons. There were plenty of trades where an apron waas essential. I'm wondering if anyone has found a butcher in their family.

I'll have to beg your indulgence as I have put up two posts this week. They were originally just one post but like Topsy it just grew and had to be split in half !

Mystery woman in an apron

Deb Gould said...

It's an odd "apron" connection, but still fun...

Doug Peabody said...

i have plenty of aprons to go around for everyone! :)

Mike Brubaker said...

I have ladies aplenty and maybe at a stretch they are wearing aprons. But they do have brass.

Hazel Ceej said...

I was listening to a girl in an apron telling a story about an egg rolling down a hill....

Kristin said...

A story about an apron, my grandmother wearing an apron and a mention of aprons in a church bulletin.

I give you an obscure category soon to be very hot on ebay.

More black and white than sepia this week - aprons at work and play

Alan Burnett said...

A little late in the day, but the boat has finally come in.

ScotSue said...

For Alan - for some reason I had trouble in publishing my comment on your latest blog - so here it is:

I have read a number of novels based around the fisherwomen of Scotland and liked are very striking postcards. . it must have been a hard life. I had never heard of the term " gipping" before, so thank you for enlightening me.

Not many aprons in LOST GALLERY so I added a few almost-aprons.
