Sepia Saturday 567 : Saturday 24 April 2021

 


Our alphabetical canter through the photographic archives represented by the Flickr Commons initiative has reached the letter C, and we have picked a winner with this 1914 photograph of Lord Loris (that's the name of the house, not the rider) who won Le Grand Steeple Chase De Paris in that year. You don't have to place all your money on just one bet, of course, you can go with horses, races, or even the letter C. Alternatively, you can ignore all racing clues and go fishing instead. just share an old photo and a few new words on or around Saturday 24th April 2021, and add a link to the list below.

The one enjoyable thing about this tour through the archives is the way you can travel freely - even in this age of international lockdown. After Caen in Normandy, France, we gallop off to Deseronto in Canada, before marching south to George Eastman House Museum in Rochester, New York State. And Sepia Saturday will be paying all the transport costs for you! Now, that's a sure bet if ever I've seen one.

There are racetracks and there are racetracks, and there are horses and there are horses, and some are just a little more special than others for one reason and another. :)

For a change I have some non-musical matches for this weekend's theme. More Austrian postcard art.

I found a "men on horseback" photo from my grandfather's mandatory military service days,1925.

An almost perfect match, but is it sepia? Sadly, it, like me, is getting on that way.

Fitting as next week is the Kentucky Derby here.

A horse race fits my blog this week. Seven years ago, Molly's Canopy galloped out of the blogging stables in a cloud of dust -- and I haven't looked back! Happy to be here to celebrate my Seventh Blogiversary with all of you!

I'm still trying to follow the alphabet with Austin stories. Today are flower sellers, but I got horses in at the end!
