Sepia Saturday 535 : 29 August 2020


Three men at a cattle sale in Australia in the 1940s. One says to the other, "What are you looking for, here today?" "Some nice fat beef cattle". he replies, "and what about you?" "Some prime hogs would be useful", he replies. They turn to the third man, a stranger in these parts. "And what about you stranger?", He takes a minute to consider his response, looks around, and then says: "'m looking for some old images to share in this weeks's Sepia Saturday challenge".  If he finds any, let's hope he posts a post on or around Saturday 29th August and links a post to the list below.

Whilst you are waiting for your bid to be accepted, take a look at the sheep and pigs ... and take a look at what is coming up on Sepia Saturday.

Sepia Saturday 534 : 22 August 2020


I have been waiting for so long for the bus, I have forgotten where I am supposed top be going to. Being Sepia Saturday, however, I can go wherever I want to. If I choose to, I can be guided by the prompt and therefore look out old photographs of buses or transport or men carrying suitcases. There again, I can just jump on the first bus that comes past and see where it takes men to. That, as always, is the beauty of Sepia Saturday. Just post your posts on or around Saturday 22 August 2020 and add a link to the list below.

And while you are waiting for the right bus to come along, take a look at what is around the corner next week, and (when I get around to it), the week after.

Sepia Saturday 533 : 15 August 2020


It takes a big man to make a big anchor. These two big men are in the process of making the enormous anchor for the steam ship Mauretania in the Swan Hunter shipyards on the River Tyne in 1907. They are here to invite you to submit your old pictures of big men, anchors of all sizes, chains and even swans: or indeed anything else you can think of that might in some way or another connect up with this theme image. All you have to do is to feature the image in a post, post the post on or around Saturday 15 August 2020, and add a link to the list below.

And whilst your attention is anchored on the subject of old photographs, take a look at what is coming up next on Sepia Saturday.

Sepia Saturday 532 : 8 August 2020

We may all be locked down, denied the opportunity to see the world, but there is one form of travel that is still open to us all, without risk, and without the need for PPE. That is, of course, time travel; and as far as time travel is concerned, Sepia Saturday is your travel agent. This week we are tempting you with the delights of a ride on a electric tramway in Wellington, New Zealand. As with all Sepia Saturday prompts, however, you are not limited to New Zealand, or trams, or cliffs, curves or posts: you can go to whatever destination you want. Simply post your post on or around Saturday 8th August 2020, and add a link to the list below.

Whilst you are waiting for the next tram, flick through the time travel brochures and see what is on offer for the next couple of weeks.
