Our theme image for Sepia Saturday 652 depicts a radio communications officer surrounded by what at the time would be all the latest communications equipment. Our themes are therefore communications in their widest sense and all manner of technology and equipment. Or it can be radio or it can be ships: with Sepia Saturday, you can be as obtuse or creative as you like. Over and out.
And for next week-
As is traditional on Sepia Saturday, our Christmas theme image covers the two week festive period. Our theme image reflects traditions and Christmas, and what could be more traditional than cart loads of turkeys on their way to market! You can make of the theme image what you will, and follow it in any direction you choose. The only essential is that you all have the very best of a sepia Christmas time.
My uncle Hugh is back now printing.
Some chosen sepia photos- several raising themselves up, some that are pretty low down...etc.
I think I've found a good match for this theme. Musical and short for a change.
I'm going "wireless" ;-) Offering some postcards for the Christmas/New Year season 1906/07, sent to my great-aunt Gerda while she was working as maid in Chicago.
Like our photo's subject, my dad was into electronics, gadgets and DIY projects -- especially at holiday time -- as illustrated by this week's Happy Holidays photo of my childhood home in 1962.
I am hoping to join you all again soon! I'm checking out easy-to-use blogging sites & as soon as I find one that does just what I need & nothing more, I shall be back posting with you & I can hardly wait. I have missed being able to do so, so much. Happy Holidays, everyone, and a Happy & Hopeful New Year! :->
Not finding any separate prompt post up yet for Sepia Saturday 653, I put a link in here for now. I've posted some more Christmas and New Year greetings, from the holiday season 1907-08 (in Chicago). (Monica T. / Greetings from the Past)
I also put up a link for my turkey post since it's been languishing for a week while waiting for the new link.
Merry Sepia Saturday! Here's my end-of-year post for 2022. No turkey but there is a goose. Happy New Year!
