|Picture Bain News Service, Library of Congress Collection|
A new year and a small makeover for the Sepia Saturday Blog. Although the look might have changed, the rules stay the same, or rather the lack of rules stay the same. Use an old image as the basis for your post and as a jumping off point to .... well to wherever you might want to go. Post on or around Saturday 8th January 2011 and link your post via the Linky List below. Check out other Sepia posters and .... well enjoy yourself.
My header picture this week continues my tour of image archives and the new year has found me within the confines of the mighty Library of Congress Print and Photographic Division. The Library was one of the major forces behind the Flickr Commons initiative which presents archive images with no known copyright restrictions. This wonderful photograph of a strike in London dates back to the second decade of the twentieth century and comes from a wonderful collection entitled "News in the 1910s".
You don't need police protection to participate in Sepia Saturday. Just post, link and read. What could be easier.
