Our Sepia Saturday theme image this week features a horse and cart and a load of barrels. It dates from the end of the nineteenth century and was taken in Sydney, Australia. As a theme image it conjures up all sorts of photographic opportunities - but let's not put the cart before the horse. Whatever you choose to feature in your Sepia Saturday post, post the post on or around Saturday 26th October 2019 and add a link to the list below. Whilst you are waiting for the cart to be unloaded, take a look at what is around the Sepia Saturday corner:-

I have spent quite a bit of time this last eighteen months pushing a pram around: for some reason this is something you recall much more when you are pushing your grandchildren around rather than their parents. I dare say there are a good few photographs locked away inside mobile phones of me on recent pram-pushing duty, but those are far too recent for Sepia Saturday purposes. The compulsion to take out a camera every time a baby and a pram is present is, luckily for our purposes, not only universal, but also timeless. Therefore, for Sepia Saturday 492, we are asking you to dip into your archives and find a suitable image - and then post it on or around Saturday 19th October. Add a link to the list below and you can help propel the image around the world.

Our theme image this week features mill workers in America in the early years of the twentieth century, and it is an image that has a very personal connection for me. Whether you, like me, have mill workers in your family tree or not, the fabric of our theme can easily stretch to encompass any aspect of the world of work. Or machines, or fabrics, or .... whatever your imagination wants to do with it. Just post a post featuring an old image on or around Saturday 12 October 2019 and add a link to the list below.

Two women on a boat in the middle of a lake. One of the women seems to be making a determined effort to row the boat, whilst the other one seems to be resting on her laurels - or at least resting on her oar. There are all sorts of potential themes in this early twentieth century photograph - just pick your theme and post a post on or around Saturday 5th October 2019. Then all you need to do is to add a link to the list below. Whilst you rest for a while, take a look at the next couple of Sepia Saturday themes.
