Old photographs are wonderful aren't they? I know I am preaching to the converted, but isn't it wonderful how an old photograph can send you on a journey : a fascinating journey of discovery. Take our archive image this week which comes from the Samuel Bell Maxey Collection at the Texas State Archives and is available via the wonderful Flickr Commons service. The only information provided is that it is a photograph of Lala Williams and Elgie Crook, but with just a few Google clicks you can discover that ...... Well, I don't want to spoil the journey for you, so go and click your own Google and take your own journey of discovery.
And so this is our theme image this week - post your posts on or around Saturday 24 November and link them to the list blow - and there are one hundred and one theme strands you may care to follow. All you need to do is to look into those two faces and let your imagination run free.
So that your imagination can shop early for Christmas, here are the next two Sepia Saturday archive image prompts.
But for the moment look again at the photograph of Lala and Elgie and let it work its sepia magic.
I know I'm very early, but may not be around the computer on Saturday...
Dee at Shakin' the Family Tree
Oh I am dashing out now. I hope I remember to come back and google them!! Hope all is going well for you and life is not too complicated
I'm early this week as I have a couple of days off work. Today is a PC day, tomorrow is early Christmas shopping.
With apologies to sisters everywhere.
I have some Thanksgiving Fun on old postcards.
As ever, the image took me on an unexpected journey.
ANYONE ELSE HAVING TROUBLE ACCESSING MIKE'S BLOG? There must be something up with the link.
I changed Lala and Elgie for my mum and her kid sister.
My sister actually agreed to this ....
I hope the link is working - it is a long time since my last post
What else -- sisters.
My posting is two adorable children in matching coats and hats
Instead of sisters I have brothers. Have a nice weekend everyone!
In anticipation of a technological interregnum, my post is early and, be warned, my comments might be late.
Mike : I hope you don't mind but I have put in a new link to your blog as the previous one didn't work.
Two pairs of sisters.
Long time since I passed this way, but it's good to find you all still hard at it! :)
That's OK - must have got rusty through lack of use over the past year,
I made it in early for a change but only because I have today off work!!!
A tribute to two close sisters - my mother and aunt/godmother. I enjoyed writing it.
This one was easy! BFFs (but I doubt highly they called each other that in 1875!).
I did bring a couple of sisters to the table.
One solitary mystery lady of Beardstown on my post...still enjoying leftover turkey here, stop by and have some..
Two musical sisters and a short story for the holiday.
I missed you all last week whilst I was away, but I'm back now! I was struggling until my brother-in-law came to my rescue.
I went with the original prompt, then gave you a link to an old post that perfectly matches the new prompt.
Life is about choice,
A completely off-topic posting from me this week.
9:40 a. m. on Saturday and I already feel late at #26!
Hi Everybody, I am finally back! Missed you all so much.
A fun photo of my great-grandma and her sister.
I've gone for one of each!
Hello- here I am on Saturday and late again! Hahahah- nah I know we can post all week, once Tuesday arrives- and this week, what adorable little sweet girls you posted. They do look like prized friends!
Hi, I'm joining in here for the first time today. Sorry, I managed to double-post my entry, forgetting from which blog account I was supposed to be posting (I keep my family history blog on a separate account from my other blogs).
Pesky children and all that dirt...a pamphlet from the 1920s comes to the rescue!
thought I linked on but must not have done something right, comment gone too...so here again and thanks for the hint that I was missing
All caught up, I think!
