Sepia Saturday 721 : Saturday 27 April 2024


I've no idea who these two are - as with most Sepians, old photographs seem to gravitate towards me like iron filings to a magnet. I am sure there is a back story somewhere, they are somebody's children, somebody's uncles, somebody's grandparents. Whoever they are, the photograph illustrates perfectly the fact that old photographs not only tell a personal story, they also tell a wider social story - the clothing, the features, the background: they are part of the two together beauty of old photographs. Whatever two together themes you might have, or indeed not have, now is your last opportunity, for the time being, to share them. Just post your post on or around Saturday 27th April 2024 and add a link to the list below.

As we leave April behind, are monthly theme changes and we are off on our travels again. Whether it be by coach, by bike, by car, or by cruise ship, our May theme is "On The Move", so get a move on and look out some suitable old photographs.

Sepia Saturday 720 : Saturday 20th April 2024

Our "Two Together" month continues with these two happy people enjoying the Spring Sunshine. There is no spring sunshine around here at the moment, but that doesn't matter because we can go back in time and find a time when the sun always shone. That's the beauty of Sepia Saturday - just find your happy memory, post it in a post on or around Saturday 20th April 2024 and add a link to the list below.

Sepia Saturday 719 : 13 April 2024

They glide across the dance floor like ... you can complete the simile yourselves. This week our April theme of two together takes to the dance floor. Your chosen old photograph may demonstrate all the grace and elegance of my Aunty Miriam and Uncle Frank (pictured on this week's theme image) or it may shake the rafters with a juggernaut of a jive. Whatever the step, whatever the music, just posts your posts on or around Saturday 13th April 2024 and add a link to the list below. And if you are sitting this one out, you might want to consider what is next here on Sepia Saturday.

Sepia Saturday 718 : 6 April 2024


Our Two Together month starts with Harry and Annie. Annie was my father's sister and her husband, Harry was a former professional musician and singer. They embarked on married life in Bradford in 1933, and that time as two together came to a sad end in 1980 when Annie died. I like to think that they were reunited two years later when Harry also died. Between 1933 and 1980 there were lots of stories, lots of drama, lots of laughter .... and, of course, lots of photographs. Ninety one years after that first day as Two Together, they are two together again, asking people from around the world to share their old photographs on or around Saturday 6th April 2024 .... and asking them to add a link to the list below. Here are the rest of the month's weekly prompts.
