The title of this image, which comes from the Flickr collection of the State Library of New South Wales, is "Depression Bread Wars, Corner Shop on Bourke and Fitzroy Streets, Surry Hills, Sydney, 21 August 1934. The photograph was taken by Sam Hood and what I love about it is the mass of information it contains. It is one of those photographs you can almost read like a book : moving from highlight to highlight piecing together a plot, a story, or in this case something of a tragedy. It is also one of those images that gives wide scope to the Sepia Saturday Themers :it is almost impossible to find whatever theme you want within the mass of prompts contained here. So, once again, I invite you to choose an old image and tell a story. The story can be as short as a sentence or as long as a lifetime, it can be fact or fiction, happy or sad. Your choice. Our reading pleasure. Just post it on your blog on or around Saturday 27th August 2011 and link to it using the Linky List below.
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.
