|Image by Lewis Hine : Archives of the US Work Progress Administration|
My archive image this week is Lewis Hine's famous picture "Power House Mechanic Working On Steam Hammer". Taken in 1920 and now part of the collection of the US Work Progress Administration and freely available via the WikiMedia Collection, the image perfectly captures that almost cursed synergy that was seen to exist between man (and woman) and machine in the 1920s and can also be seen in films such as Chaplins' masterpiece "Modern Times". For the "themers" amongst Sepia Saturday regulars there is plenty to be working on, for those who are following a theme of their own, it is something to look at and admire whilst they link their own contribution. Sepia Saturday 68 will be on or about the 2nd April 2011, which I suppose is anytime between now and next Sunday, so get working.
SEPIA SATURDAY is a weekly meme which encourages bloggers to publish and share old images and photographs. All that is required is for contributors to post an old image (it doesn't have to be in sepia) and provide a few words in explanation. If you could provide a link back to the Sepia Saturday Blog and visit as many of the other contributors as you can, it would also be appreciated. There is no weekly theme, as such, but some people like to use the archive image published with the weekly call as a kind of theme. There is no requirement to adopt such an approach : the choice of image is entirely up to you. Once you have published your Sepia Saturday post, add a link to that post to the Linky List published each week and leave a comment to let everyone know you are joining in.
