Sepia Saturday 444 : 10th November 2018


It is one hundred years since the end of the First World War - the Great War to end all wars: although it was anything but great and merely served as a prelude to a second world war twenty-one years later. In so many communities the victims of war are commemorated by statues, but so often the victims are also remembered by lines of haunted faces. There is perhaps something suitable about our theme image this week - it is an image that features cold stone statues and haunted, unrecognisable faces. You can use the prompt as you wish - the statue can celebrate whatever you want, the haunted faces can have whatever narrative you wish to give them. Simply share with us an old image and your thoughts about it. Post your post on or around Saturday 10th November 2018 and add a link to the list below.

Here are the theme images for the following two weeks

A simple response to this prompt - I take a look at men commemorated in stone in Edinburgh and the Scottish Borders, from n historical war leaders, politicias, writer and publisher to sporting heroes from more recent times.

Living within an ongoing conflict, shall confederate soldiers statues remain or be removed because they remind us of the racism that still exists in so many minds?

My post is about a monumental accomplishment as my fourth grade teacher Miss Helen George goes to college in 1936.

The statue for the United States Colored Troops from the Civil War with a bit about the regiments and the men who served from my trees.

It's still Saturday by my clock, so I'm not late. I found something for Veterans Day. Non-musical for a change.
