My archive image this week is neither sepia nor is it a photograph : but when have rules ever been important round here at Sepia Saturday? It's old and its interesting - who could ask for anything more. If the "themers" amongst us ask for anything more they can take their pick from pretty girls, horses, polo, Queensland, magazines, the stratosphere, sea stories and Jean Harlow. Not to mention the half dozen or so hidden themes that many of you like to discover and share with the rest of us. I have said before on many occasions, that I often think of blogging as being the natural descendant of these wonderful illustrated magazines of the 1930s and 1940s. So I look forward to Issue 94 of Sepia Saturday Illustrated Weekly which will be available at your local newsstand on or around Saturday 1st October 2011. To participate just link your post to the list below, and then "read all about it".
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.
