This week I am featuring a photograph of a couple sat on the running board of a car. They smile and look happy: maybe they are on their holidays or going for a day out at the seaside. I have no idea who they are, but that doesn't matter; they are universal tokens of the very essence of family photographs - happy memories that will last forever. The cars may change, as do the fashions, but that desire to capture a moment of happiness was there eighty years ago when this photograph was taken, and it is still there today on countless smartphone selfies. Sepia Saturday provides an opportunity for us to share such family memories, and you are invited to share yours by adding a link to the list below, on or around Saturday 2 October 2021.
Running boards were handy places to sit and rest or pose for pictures.
Happy family memories with cars as the backdrop.
One car photo leads to another, and then we're off on a fairy tale adventure...
I think I have a match, but because I've just returned from holiday it's something short and sweet. And musical, of course.
Just some more sepia photos that have been posted on various FaceBook sites...I love seeing some of them!
