Here are the Sepia Saturday theme images for May
Thursday, 18 April 2019
Two cheeky chaps - Chris and Max - bringing us a little Easter joy and happiness. Happiness, laughter, stripes, blazers, entertainers: take your choice as far as your Easter Sepia Saturday challenge is concerned. Match the theme, ignore the theme, interpret the theme - the choice is up to you. All you need to do is to do it on or around Saturday 20th April 2019 and add a link to the list below.
If you like to think ahead, here is a reminder of next week's Sepia Saturday theme image. And the fact that there is only one theme image left serves as a reminder to me that I need to go in search of some May theme images. I will post a full list of May themes soon.

What would you like to buy? It is a stall in a street, a street in a town, a town that could be anywhere. I have even arranged for a cyclist to ride in the background to add another potential theme to this week's Sepia Saturday prompt. Whatever you decide to buy, whatever you decide to post: post it on or around Saturday 13th April 2019 and add a link to the list below. And if you don't like what is on display on this stall, take a look at what is around the Sepia Saturday corner.

Our Sepia Saturday theme images for April are all taken from an album of old photographs which somehow came into my possession. I do not know the people featured in the album, but its owner was a cataloguer who normally provided a caption and a date. For this week, our theme image has a seaside theme - or rather a lakeside theme. The caption reads: "Joan and the Pedalo, Lake Maggiore, Italy 1947" There are all sorts of potential theme prompts - water, lakes, swimsuits, deckchairs .... you name it. Whatever you choose, post your post on or around Saturday 6th April 2019 and add a link to the list below. And whilst you are drifting around on an Italian lake, you might want to think about the next two theme images.

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.
