It was a big day in the history of Dollinger Steel of Beaumont, Texas. It was their 50th anniversary dinner and countless guests had been invited to the celebratory dinner. And the photographer had come along as well to record the event. Back in the days when photographs were about more than just an idle click of a mobile phone touch screen, events and photographs went together. Weddings, birthdays, gatherings, anniversaries and parties : none would be complete without the burst of a flash bulb and all those practised cheese-smiles. So for Sepia Saturday 252 - post your posts on or around Saturday 1st November 2014 and add a link to the list below - we are asking you to feature an event, a tent, a cooking pot or even a name-tag. Let your freedom of interpretation be as extensive as a hungry diner queue and as voluminous as a generous cooking pot. Whilst you are waiting to fill your sepia plate, you might like to contemplate the next two Sepia Saturday calls.
It looks like we have a fishy few weeks ahead, so before you get your feet wet, it is time to join the line for a bite to eat. Fish and chips anyone?
