Sepia Saturday 421 : 2 June 2018


SEPIA SATURDAY 421 : SATURDAY 2 JUNE 2018
Archives of the East Riding Of Yorkshire
Beverley Town Floods 1912
FLOODS  :  CHILDREN  :  WATER  :  CROWDS

The Sepia Saturday theme image this week (post your post on or around Saturday 2 June and add a link to the list below) features a group of children enjoying a paddle in the flood waters of the Beverley Town flood in 1912. There are a flood of possible theme ideas you could take from this image: children, water, games, making the best of things - all these ideas come crowding forward. Take you choice. And take a look at what is around the Sepia corner.

60 years on from the prompt photograph, and a look at children paddling in the floods in Hawick in the Scottish Borders.

Too close for comfort...flooded streets and flash flooding May 29, 2018, as well as a bit of historic children marching.

Eliza Hamilton and her Orphan Asylum Society of 1806, and others.

As promised I have part two of my story on the Children's Home Band of Des Moines, WA. It's long but I think it's worth the read.

A little on the late side ... The prompt image amazingly fit with a continuation of last week's post.
