Sepia Saturday 688 : 2 September 2023


We are on their street this month in Sepia Saturday with all the theme images somehow related to that general theme. You can either follow the general theme, look for something in the weekly theme image to follow (for example the crowds, the buses or the wide streets in this week's image), or ignore the theme all together. Just give us an old image and some new thoughts and post your post on or around Saturday 2 September 2023 and then add a link to the list below. 

Let's see where this particular street leads to in the coming weeks:-

Sepia Saturday 687 : 26 August 2023


We are nearing the end of our school days - or at least the end of our month of school day related prompts. This is your final chance to sit quietly and draw a nice picture for teacher - or at least share a nice old photograph with your sepia school-friends. Simply post your post on or around Saturday 26th August 2023 and add a link to the list below. And when school is out, it's time to hit the streets, so here is a preview of what is around the street corner in the first part of September.

Sepia Saturday 686 : Saturday 19 August 2023

We are still at school here on Sepia Saturday and asking you to share your old photographs that somehow or other might fall within the general theme of "School Days". This week we have a group of school pupils at a Sports Day, but that is merely my interpretation of the theme - you can come up with your own, When you have, post your post on or around Saturday 19th August 2023 and add a link to the list below. And whilst we are waiting for the first race to begin, take a look at what awaits you on Sepia Saturday.

Sepia Saturday 685 : 12 August 2023


Our theme picture this week might not make you immediately think of school days, but it does me. That's my old school in the background and, I suspect, given enough time I could put names to some of the schoolboys stood around watching the high jump and most of the school teachers organising it. Schools and school days are like that, rich seams in the memory mine. Here is your opportunity to evoke old school days for yourself, someone in your family or some unknown person whose image happens to be in your collection.  Simply post your post on or around Saturday 12 August 2023 and add a link to the list below. And here is a reminder of the other school days to come during the rest of this month.

Sepia Saturday 684 : 5th August 2023


School Days is a bit of a silly theme for August, because if there is one month when kids are likely not to be spending days in school, it is August. We have never claimed to be logical here on Sepia Saturday, so why start now. So look out your old photos that illustrate the general theme (school days), the weekly theme image (school rooms, flags etc), or no theme at all. All we want is an old photo and some new thoughts. Post your post on or around Saturday 5th August 2023 and add a link to the list below. And once you've done that you can make a start on your homework and plan for the next three weeks of school days.
