Although I am posting this before I leave for holiday, by the time Sepia Saturday 80 gets around (on or about Saturday 25th June 2011) I should be back. And I will be participating. And there is a reason why I have chosen this particular image : but you will have to wait until my post is up to find out. The photograph above dates back to 1942 and it comes from the collection of the Library of Congress. If you want to follow a theme, feel free - but pick whatever theme you like from the above image. Whatever you choose, come and join me for Sepia Saturday 80.
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.
Happy Sepia Saturday to all!! Looking forward to seeing all the entries. Rosie.
I see that I have to make comments under "anonymous" for now, that is the only way to leave a comment, Rosie!
I have some postcards plus more photos from the Library Of Congress.
Something different from me this week - a competition for you all to have a go at.
Chocolate, Women’s Football, Tattoos and a WW1 explosive mix!
Seeing that aircraft engine I knew I had to find some shots of how it used to be to fly.
I thought I'd exhausted my supply of vintage found aeroplane photos, but there was one I'd forgotten!
I have just posted but am not theming this week as. I am however intrigued by Alan's teaser and looking forward to his commentary for his selected picture.
I added a post with a humorous card about WWII aircraft production on my Postcard Funnies blog.
My post has some problems which involved mechanics. That's my connection to this theme. Thanks for visiting Fran and Bunt's Western Adventure.
Help, I'm stuck in last week's theme and I can't get out!
I have several ideas here but who knows what I will choose....Rosie the Riveter theme or factory or engines it goes on...we will see
Part I of my brother's war and the beginning of some detective work
I am disconnected from the theme this week. I've been saving this post and hope everyone will enjoy another story of obscure musical instruments. Very sepia though.
I'm Almost "on Topic" This Week!
I was looking for a reason to start off a week of vintage military photos, and this is it! I kick off with four photos of World War 2 soldiers - commentary on what branch of the military they are is welcomed and encouraged (please, please, pretty please...) :-)
not a themer, and if history and local politics bore you, skip it!!
see you next week, no offence.
Not so much on this week's theme, but hope everyone enjoys it and have a great week end ahead....!Hope Alan's holiday is going smoothly too!
First World War for me, and my first entry to Sepia Saturday!
Im somewhat on theme, tried to keep it to large machinery on mine :) Still anxious to hear more details about this photo posted as our theme!
I saw your meme at QMM's blog. I'm happy to participate to give new life to my old photos. Thanks for hosting.
Wowza! I love this and the woman's red stripes. Can't wait to here what it is all about! Thanks for hosting and I will be around to see everyone's posts later this week as we have company! :)
Not on the theme this week. A shadowy photo from 1962 and one of my football playing Canadian resident cousin Kamau Peterson.
Hi. Looks like a new follower may be spurious. I blocked the new lady from my blog. She was just too questionable.
