Sepia Saturday 438 : 29 September 2018


"Once again, it is school photograph time. Let us go outside to the school yard and line up for the photograph: smaller children at the front, arms and legs tied up like trussed turkeys; taller children at the back, sprouting up like supercharged saplings. And don't forget to smile! I know you might have double maths next, I know you find yourself next to the one child you really can't get on with - but at least make it look as though you are enjoying yourself. The best days of your life - that is what your schooldays are. You will be captured for history. You will be able to look back on this photograph when you are older and wiser and a chartered accountant, a painter and decorator, a nurse or - if you are very lucky - a schoolteacher like me. And even further forward in time, people from all over the world may look at this photograph and use it as a theme prompt for their blog posts. What do you think of that?"
"Please Sir, what is a blog?"

Whatever a blog may be, post an old photograph to your blog that connects in some way or another with our theme image and leave a link to it in the list below. Post your post on or around Saturday 29th September 2018. And if you can't face double maths next, them you can always look at what is next in Sepia Saturday.

School days, school days . . . and I'm happy to say I can still remember most of their names - even quite a few last names! :)

I think I have a match for this theme. Musical of course.
