In these modern days when you can get anything you want from Amazon.com, it makes you long for the old days when there were specialists shops. The precise specialisms of the shop featured in this week's Sepia Saturday prompt is a little unclear - it might be fish, it might be melons, and it might even be house moving. Whatever you buy from the old, reliable F M Pointer, you were sure of a square deal with honest weights; and it is the same service and quality you can also rely on from Sepia Saturday. Just post your posts on or around Saturday 16th April 2022 - they don't have to be square, that's the deal - and add a link to the list below. And whilst you are chomping on your perch or trout or water melon, spare a moment to check out what is on the other side of the Fish Lake in the weeks ahead.
1/ Wishing you all Happy Easter, with some Easter Cards from c. 1916-17
2/ Stockholm Exhibition 1930, and continuing Gerda's story
Sharing my anniversary (59th) of being a Pan Am Stewardess.
A much shorter post, with the theme!
Happy Easter, my fellow Sepians!
No fish or watermelons, but I do have a country store with music.
I am going with the building...in my case, 45 Grand St. in Gloversville, N.Y., where I was enumerated in the 1950 US Census.
A shop where shoes were repaired before they were replaced.
