Sepia Saturday 416 : 28 April 2018


Sepia Saturday 416 : 28 April 2018
Helsinki residents waiting for evacuation at the railway station. (1939)
TRAVEL  :  WAR  :  EVACUATION 

At the moment I am packing my bags ready for departure. Unlike these poor people, I am not heading off to danger and the unknown, simply to the Spanish sun for a week. Without planning them that way, the themes for the next two weekends seem appropriate to me: but your challenge is to tell us how the theme image for Sepia Saturday 416 is appropriate to you. Do so by posting a post featuring an old image from your collection on or around Saturday 28th April 2018 and adding a link to the list below.

I will post the call for next week before I go, but here is a preview for the next couple of weeks.

Many families move around, here's a 1926 story of the migration to the west...to Louisiana from Alabama in 1848.

A negative found in Perth of my Great Grandmother.

I couldn't find anything for this theme, so it's just three pairs of dudes. Musical of course.

A collection of coats, jackets, sweaters, and anything else to keep warm!

Inspired by Barbara's post, I rooted out my aunt's story about moving to the next province in Canada about 1910.

Oh no! A double post. Woe is me. Can someone delete one of me?

Travel: April 24 was the Fourth Blogiversary of Molly's Canopy -- dedicated to my late Mom and Dad, who accompanied me on the first road trip of my genealogy journey. Then Molly's Canopy is taking a Spring Break in May...returning in June with new posts.

Please bear with me as I cheat a little today. It is becoming a joy to participate in Sepia Saturday again after my long absence. My brain has healed enough that I can actually put some thoughts together that make at least a bit of sense - but I am having a hard time getting my ideas together in time for the "deadline." I'm re-using last week's post because I think Tony was the only one who visited after my late submission. I'd love for you to weigh in!

So here is my second cheat. It has no sepia image, but does apply to the theme of immigrants.
