It’s difficult to guess what is going on in the above photograph, but we can have fun trying. The picture comes from the TAHO (Tasmanian Archive and Heritage Office) via Flickr Commons, and is simpled titled ‘Old Coaches 1900’. Alan is still on his travels, though his mode of transport is somewhat different to the one in our prompt picture. I wonder if he is wearing his sunhat, and will a fellow traveller playfully try to knock it off his head? This is mischief being made by idle hands; the coachmen are waiting for their passengers and a little clowning around is going on for the camera.
No mischief is expected from our Sepia Saturday participants this week. There are any number of themes that can be taken from this picture: coach rides, old transport, roof-racks, luggage, waiting, animated discussion, clowning, cab drivers, or whatever else pops into your head. Of course you don’t have to theme and can simply post an old picture or two with a link back to Sepia Saturday, on or around 11 October. Enter your (direct) link to your own blogpost below and leave us a comment please. Then hop aboard the Sepia Saturday coach and visit other Sepians to see what they made of the prompt; don’t forget to show your appreciation of their efforts with a word or two in their comments section.
Just time to mention that there is a Facebook group for Sepia Saturday contributors. Why not join us as we have a lot of fun and post some interesting items there. You will need to have posted on Sepia Saturday at least once; then you’ll be given a warm welcome.
