First of all an apology to those taking part in Sepia Saturday 69 because I did not manage to get around and visit everyone. Things just began to stack up last weekend and my schedule fell to pieces. Hopefully things will be better this week. And now on to Sepia Saturday 70 and a challenge to those of you who like to identify and follow themes, for here we have a 1910 photograph of President Theodore Roosevelt riding a camel! The photograph comes from the collection of the Dutch National Archives that are featured on Flickr Commons. Do with it as you will all you themers : politicians, camels, Egypt - the list is as endless as the desert sands. As always you don't have to follow any theme you may or may not identify - just post an old picture and tell us something about it. Sepia Saturday 70 will take place on or around Saturday 16th April so climb on board, settle down between the humps and enjoy the ride.
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.
