Our tour of the archives reaches the letter H and where better to look than the photographic archives of the Museum of Hartlepool. Our theme image this week features a 1920s print entitled "Remaining Belongings"which shows a man and a boy rescuing what remains of their household effects following the Great Timber Yard Fire of 1922. They carry a mattress, a couple of chairs and two framed photographs: emphasising, if ever it needed emphasising for us Sepians, the importance of the saved image. If a fire was to break out up the street now, I would abandon the chair, but quickly disconnect the hard drive with all my collected digital images. What image would you save if fire was heading down the street? Whether it's a saved image, a mattress, or a couple of old chairs, post your post on or around Saturday 29th May 2021 and add a link to the list below.
Here is what you might like to save for the next Sepia Saturday prompt.
