Sepia Saturday 414 : 14 April 2018
A boy pushes a wheelbarrow full of dried fish. (1930s)
FISH : FACTORIES : WHEELBARROWS
Everyone has a photograph of a wheelbarrow of dried fish somewhere in their collection, so this week's Sepia Saturday theme challenge will be an easy one. The difficulty you will probably have is just deciding which of your many photographic studies of dried fish to share with your fellow Sepians. Whatever the outcome, share your image on or around Saturday 14th April 2018 and add a link to the list below.
Whilst you are waiting for your fish to dry, take a look at what lies ahead for the rest of April. The May theme images will be posted within the next few days.
A fishy post from me
Celebrating an ancestor who came to America and settled in Ipswich, where fishing and clams are noteworthy!
The fish weren't biting for me so I've gone for the factory theme. Musical of course.
Mine is my great-grandfather Frank Owen's late years, after he left factory work. Also, please stop back to last week's post...I found a much better, color version of my great-grandmother's printed memorial http://mollyscanopy.com/2018/04/1922-a-death-in-the-owen-family/.
Lots and lots of fish - some sadly meeting with disaster.
My eye focused on the background in the prompt photograph - and on the factory and the factory chimney. So I turned to the local history of my village and the story of Rhymer’s Mill.
I've disregarded the fish and focussed on the wheelbarrow!
I was a real simple minded guy finding boats in the water from along time ago. I have been bad a keeping up but posting is better than not posting.
Like Jo, I focussed on the wheelbarrow. I made the post, but forgot to press, publish, hence it's late.
