Sepia Saturday 514 : 4 April 2020



A young woman, serious looking, reading a book. She looks straight at the camera as though she is sending us a message about her life and times down the centuries. Change the hairstyle and the heavy Victorian clothes, throw out the carved chair and rich velvet tablecloth, and it might be any young woman today: sat reading, sending future generations a message about the times we are living through. Wherever you may be, the chances are that you are denied the pleasure of company, friends, going out, sharing good times. At times like this, all we can do is to try to stay safe, and occupy our minds as best we can. If that includes digging through your old photographs and sharing them, feel free to join on with Sepia Saturday. If you want a theme, find one in the weekly theme image: but you don't need to follow a theme to take part. Just an old photographs and a few new thoughts. Post your post on or around Saturday 4th April 2020 and add a link to the list below. And if you like themes, here is a preview of the next two theme images.

Another excellent theme for which I have some suitable old postcards. Only a little bit musical.

It's been a tough few weeks sheltering in place in NYC's borough of Queens -- the C19 epicenter in the U.S. But I am safe and well, hope you are too, and it's great to be back here. I am doing the A to Z Challenge (26 posts in April) on Endwell: My Elementary Years -- so this Sepia Saturday post features a moment of fifth grade drama.

All of my family readers are women and all but one photo has been taken outside. Does that say something about my family?
