All you need to do is to share your image in a blog post, post that post on or around Saturday 2nd March 2019, and then add a link to the list below.

I seem to be on familiar territory with this week's Sepia Saturday theme image - in the comfortable surroundings of a cosy wine merchants establishment in Paris. The photograph is entitled "Marchand de vin rue Boyer" and is by the French photographer, Eugène Atget (1857-1927). The photograph is held in the archives of the George Eastman Museum and forms part of their Flickr Commons stream. They estimate the date of the photograph to be around 1910-11.
As usual, we invite you to look at the image and find something within it to act as a connection with an old image from your own collections. Let your thoughts flow like fine French wine and share with us some of your best vintage photographs. All you need to do is to post your posts on or around Saturday 23 February 2019 and then add a link to the list below.
Whilst you are sampling a selection of your best vintages, you might want to keep in mind the next two Sepia Saturday prompts.
You will notice that I have been doing a little long-overdue housekeeping on the Sepia Saturday Blog. I have included a new Sepia Saturday header image, and also updated the links to the blogs of Sepia Saturday participants. If I have missed your blog from this list, please let me know and I will add it.

You know what it's like when you get back from holiday - there is no food in the cupboard, the fridge is empty, and for some reason the gas oven isn't working. You have to do the best you can with whatever is available: get a few twigs, light a fire and boil up some privet leaf soup. Once you have had your fill, settle back and try and come up with a match for this week's Sepia Saturday. Whatever you come up with, post it on or around Saturday 9th February 2019 and add a link to the list below.
Whilst you are looking through your old photos, keep an eye open for potential matches for the next two Sepia Saturday theme images. Here they are -
