If you think that our theme image this week is a little, shall we say, "odd"; you should have seen the alternatives! You will recall that I am starting the new year by doing a trawl through the various archives available on Flickr Commons, and this week I have arrived at American National Library of Medicine stream. The only description of the illustration in question is as follows: "Image of a lithograph from Hebra's Atlas, pt. 10, pl. 7, showing a man in red shirt whose face is completely covered in brown hair". Sepians who wish to theme-along can "let their hair down" with this one going with unflattering portraits, beards, hair, lockets, medical conditions or red shirts. All you need to do is to post your post on or around the 10th January 2015 and then add a link to the list below.
But before you start pulling your hair out as you search for a possible match to the hairy man with the red shirt, here is our usual preview of the next couple of Sepia Saturday calls.
262 : The law, trials, photographs with writing on them
263 : Old adverts, horses, carts, strange products
Those are for the future; for now search out that old photograph of Great Aunt Ruth-Annie with the hairy upper lip, or Cousin Colin with the half-hearted beard and join in with Sepia Saturday 261.
