Going up and down but never getting anywhere ... but that is enough about the political situation in Britain. You can take your mind of the political situation wherever you happen to be by diving into your photographic archives and attempting to come up with a match for this week's Sepia Saturday theme image. Just post your post on or around Saturday 30th March 2019 and add a link to the list below. And whilst you are rocking away, why not take a look at the next two Sepia Saturday theme images.

We are dancing along this week with a somewhat odd couple - the girl on the left is brewery heiress Grania Guinness, and the main on the right is Australian actor Cyril Ritchard. The story behind their odd pose has been lost, but that doesn't matter because they are inviting you to share you old photographs: whether they be of dancing, odd poses or anything you like. All you need do is to post your post on or around Saturday 23rd March 2019 and add a link to the list below.
Next week brings the last of our theme images based on the Flickr Commons stream of the National Library of Australia.
Our theme images for April are all chosen from a photograph album of unknown origin that came into my possession via the wonders of eBay. Here is a quick preview of our April theme images.

Our Sepia Saturday theme image this week is an energetic affair with arms, limbs and bodies moving all over the place. It comes from the Flickr stream of the National Library of Australia and it features square dancing at Earl's Court Ballroom, St Kilda, Victoria in 1950. All you need to do is to listen to the rhythm, dance along with the beat, take your partner and find a matching photo from your collection. Once you have, include it in a blog post, and post your post on or around Saturday 16th March 2019. Then add a link to the list below.
Whilst you are waiting for the music to start, take a look at what pictorial dances lie ahead.

Our Sepia Saturday theme image this week once again comes from the Flickr collection of the National Library of Australia and has the title, "Nurse reading a book on the upstairs verandah of The Family Hotel in Sheridan Street, Gundagai, New South Wales / Charles Gabriel, between 1887 and 1927" After a title as long and exhaustive as that you might want to lie down and read a book. But before you do so, spend a moment or two looking through your old photographs to see if you have anything to match this theme image. If you have, put it in a blog post and post your post on or around Saturday 9th March 2019 and then add a link to the list below.
And whilst you are having that rest, spare a thought for the next two theme images.
