Back in the good old days, before all this cheek kissing took hold of humanity, you would greet friend and foe alike with a hearty handshake. You could judge the strength of character with a handshake, determine sincerity, secure agreement, and solve most of the problems known to man (and woman) kind. Our prompt image this week shows just such a handshake, and the shaker in question will be well known to people from the United Kingdom above a certain age, for it is the late Prime Minister, Harold Wilson. The photograph comes from the Tyne and Wear Museums collection on Flickr Commons and dates back to the late 1960s. If you are in search of a theme for Sepia Saturday 235, there is, of course, handshakes, and also politicians, pipes and kids sat on fences (which makes a change from politicians sat on fences). All you have to do is to post your post on or about Saturday 5th July 2014 and then link to the list below. But first of all, take a look at what is in store if you vote for Sepia Saturday.
236 : Hair, drying, beauty, nails, strange headgear.
237 : Ballet Dancers, art, poses, chiffon
But all such things are for the future. And the future is bright. The future is wonderful. The future is anything you want it to be. Just vote for Sepia Saturday and shake my hand in agreement.
