Sepia Saturday 215 : 15 February 2014


Our theme image this week features a picture postcard view of Jamaica Street, Glasgow (from the National Gallery of Scotland stream on Flickr Commons). I am not expecting people to match the Glasgow theme, or indeed the Jamaica theme, although knowing the resources and imagination of Sepians, I wouldn't be too surprised if some people took up such a challenge. The thing that came to my mind when I first saw the image was the crowds : we always tend to think of crowded streets as being something new, something twenty-first century, but clearly that isn't the case. As always, you can go in whichever direction you want to, simply post a post on or around Saturday 15 February and link to the list below.

But before you run off to catch a horse tram, take a look at our crowded agenda for the weeks to come.


Sepia Saturday 216 - 22 February 2014 : Three men in suits, three men in hats, three men ....


Sepia Saturday 217 - 1 March 2014 : Hopefully we have not had this before : three men hiking up a mountain with a big telescope, one of them being a famous composer. 

There we go. It's time to join the crowds and get your Sepia Saturday posts ready.

Braving the traffic - from across the world and across the century - plus a tribute to four leg travel.

I have a postcard with a busy street and streetcars too.

My busy street is imaginary, but I focus on the life of a man who made a difference in a city once upon a time, and his library still is in operation today.

Wendy said...

We're going to a parade!

Alan Burnett said...

Two busy postcards compared.

Two stops in the past for the price of one.

I like turn of the century street scenes. Compared to today's streets they're often much more lively.

Kristin said...

A busy street in Detroit about 1939 and some happenings I happened upon.

Mill fire in Brighouse,,,a warning to us all!

Rosie said...

I went a little "off track" this week as you will see.

Howard said...

I have a tram as a prominent feature in my post this week, so I am much more on-topic than I usually am.

Mike Brubaker said...

As promised - Part 2.

Joy said...

The crowds gather both north and south of the border with me.

San Francisco then, now, and in between. And now that we've explored city streets, maybe we could be prompted to dig out photos of country roads?

Different ways of crowding a street

Doug Peabody said...

This was too easy. I have tons of trolley postcards. However, none were used. lol

Ah, another fine theme, as there were so many ways one could go with this, and so little time. What ever do we do?! Just pour a glass of wine and sit back and create, Saturday will,oops arrived right now!

A charabanc for me on one of my rather sporadic visits to Sepia Saturday.

Joan said...

A rather puny effort, but posted it is.

I missed Valentine's day, but it reminded me that absence makes the heart grow fonder, which is why I proposed to Little Nell over 39 years ago,leading to this memory of the most exciting and beautiful city I've ever seen. I must take her there.

It's been a while - sorry. And I'm late too...double sorry!
