Sepia Saturday 277 : 2 May 2015

Our Sepia Saturday roadshow reaches the Vancouver Public Library Historical Photograph Archives (which are part of the Flickr Commons collection) and this photograph of a 1960 football game between The Kits and Delbrook. You might want to follow a theme like football or sport or action or any other theme that you can think of. Just post your post on or around Saturday 2nd May 2015 and add a link to the list below. 

Before the game starts, take a look at what is coming in future fixtures.

278 : Old and Decayed Photographs / Portraits

279 : Safety / Danger / Industry

By the time Sepia Saturday 277 comes around I should be back from holiday, so I look forward to playing along at Sepia Saturday with you once again.

Sepia Saturday 276 : 25 April 2015

Newlyweds. Babies. Newlyweds and babies. Babies and newlyweds. Cradles. Women with astonishing hairdo's.You might also want to consider book covers as well. Our theme image for Sepia Saturday 276 can accommodate all of these things as we visit the on-line archives of the Virginia Commonwealth Library.  Whatever you go with, just post your post on or around Saturday 25 April 2015 and add a link to the list below.

Before you open the book, take a look at what is around the corner.

278 : Decayed and Damaged Photographs

When you read this (hopefully), I will be on holiday (hopefully), sat on some beach reading some fascinating book (hopefully). Good luck

Sepia Saturday 275 : 18 April 2015

For Sepia Saturday 275 our tour of the photographic archives participating in the Flickr Commons project reaches the Tasmanian Archives and Heritage Office and, in particular, this image entitled "Hydro Electric Commission (H.E.C.) linemen maintaining electrical services, corner Bathurst and Barrack Streets (c1969)". The theme image might bring all sorts of things to mind - wires, cables, ladders, sky - or you might just want to post an image with a long and complicated title. Whatever you decide to post, post it on or around Saturday 18 April 2015 and leave a link on the list below. 

Before you start your blue sky thinking (grey sky thinking), take a look at what is coming over the next few weeks.

276 : Babies / Newlyweds (not necessary in that order)

277 : Sport / Football / Action

I am following the wires south to where the sky is blue and I will be away for a couple of weeks. I have scheduled the next couple of calls and hopefully they will appear on time (unlike most of my manual calls). If there is a problem Marilyn will, I am sure, intervene. If all else fails you can always give me a ring, but don't be surprised if the lines are all down.

Sepia Saturday 274 : 11 April 2015

Looking out of the window and the sun is shining and Spring is in the air. The prospect for the coming months is warm summer sun, blue skies and Factor 98 Sun-screen. It is therefore a timely reminder from your Sepia Saturday host that you should be thinking of ordering your winter coal now. Our theme image for Sepia Saturday 274 - post your posts on or around Saturday 11 April 2015 - comes from the Library Company of Philadelphia (via the ever-faithful Flickr Commons) and shows a World War 1 era poster for the United States Fuel Administration. If you are a theme then you can think about horses, carts, coal, fuel, fires or posters. If you are a dreamer you can think about toasted bread around an open fire. Just make sure that amidst all that thinking you post your post and then link it to the list below.

And spare a thought for what is on the cart for the next couple of weeks

275 : Wires / Cables / Ladders / Sky

276 : Babies / Newlyweds (not necessarily in that order)

Such thoughts are for the future. For the present start shovelling those lumps of imaginary coal into the creative furnace that is Sepia Saturday
