Our Sepia Saturday theme image this week features two little children, their faces full of hope and expectation, photographed at a time of great tragedy. It is a photograph of two "Titanic Orphans" - the French brothers Michel (age 4) and Edmond Navratil (age 2). To board the ship, their father assumed the name Louis Hoffman and used their nicknames, Lolo and Mamon. Their father died in the disaster of the RMS Titanic, which struck an iceberg in April 1912 and sank, killing more than 1,500 people. The photograph comes from the Bain Collection, part of the Library of Congress stream on Flickr Commons.
There are, of course, endless possibilities as far as themes are concerned (you don't need me to point them out to you). All I need to point out is that you should post your posts on or around Saturday 16th January 2016 and add a link to the list below.
Before you embark on your Sepia Saturday journey this week, you might want to see what is over the Sepia horizon.
A full list of themes for the first quarter of 2016 can be found in the link on the sidebar. For now, jump on board Sepia Saturday 313 - who knows where we might finish up!
