Sepia Saturday 609 : 19 February 2022

 

A Ford Sedan and an unknown man - it has a certain poetical feel to it. Over the centuries poetry has been a means by which people can express their emotions, record their hopes and fears, their achievements and their failures. Equally, for the last 150 or so years, photography has been a means of doing the same thing, so this week for Sepia Saturday we are asking you to contribute your own visual poems. They can be about the love that exists between a man (or woman) and their automobiles ... or indeed anything else. Just share some old photographs and some new thoughts and link your posts to the list below, on or around Saturday 19th February 2022.

Sepia Saturday is an anthology rather than a single visual poem, so here are the next two prompt images for you to think about.

I am fortunate to have many family photos of cars in times gone past

Some have been in an earlier SS, but here are the family cars and a few of myself as well!

No cars in my post, but Gerda (in France 1918) is off on a trip or two again - and back in Sweden, Gustaf has moved back to the family farm, and has gone cow-shopping!

Stand By Your Car - is my theme with photographs down the decades from my local history group and family collection.

Found a photo of an unidentified man with his foot on the running board. I think I identified him though.

I think I've got this theme covered. Musical, of course, and poetry too.

Portrait of my Italian 3rd great grandmother -- but with a rose bush instead of a car.

So much history, elegance and fun in our cars from the earliest days.

A cousin just emailed me to say that he had met Caruso when he was a child and he doesn't think that's him. So, back to unidentified. Still glad I got to share the rest of the information :) And met a cousin.
