The 4th October is the date in 1941 that Norman Rockwell launched a series of Saturday Evening Post covers depicting Willie Gillis. Rockwell described Gillis as “an inoffensive ordinary little guy thrown into the chaos of war”. Willie made his debut carrying a food parcel and suddenly everyone wanted to be his friend.
No chaos here this week; Alan is on holiday and I’m reasonably organised. All you have to do is choose a theme suggested by the prompt picture: the little guy, parcel from home, food package, followers, magazine covers or whatever else you see. Post your own old images, sometime around Saturday 4th October, with a link back to Sepia Saturday. Enter your (direct) link to your own blogpost below and leave us a comment please.Then off you go to follow other Sepians and see what goodies they have unwrapped in their packages, remembering to leave a thank you note for sharing. Enjoy!
Before I go, I’ll just mention that there is a Facebook group for Sepia Saturday contributors. Why not join us as we have a lot of fun and post some interesting items there. You will need to have posted on Sepia Saturday at least once; then we’ll welcome you with open arms.
