Sepia Saturday 391 : 28th October 2017


Our theme image this week features a troop of majorettes marching through the streets of Rotherham in South Yorkshire. They were, in fact, taking part in the Yorkshire Miners' Gala parade in the early 1980s, and - suitably for the time and the event - they were marching past Rotherham Conservative Club! I have no idea what you are going to make of this as a theme - but street parades, uniforms and galas come to mind. Whatever you go with, simply post your post on or around Saturday 28th October and add a link to the list below.

Next weekend is suitably close to Halloween and therefore we have a topical theme. The weekend after we have a photographer on his travels with a rather large camera. I will be on my travels over the next few weeks - hopefully my camera will be easier to pack than this one!

This theme was hard just because I have lots of photos that would work. I've chosen to follow the drum major idea, but without the fur hats. Musical of course.

The pioneers of my ancestors who signed a petition for protection of the state of NC from the Indians...no marching women this time.
