Sepia Saturday 263 : 24 January 2015


Regular readers will know that we are currently trotting our way through the various archive collections available via the Flickr Commons initiative. This week we have arrived at the Internet Archive of Book Images and, in particular, an illustration from the 1882 volume "Breeder and Sportsman" which is advertising air cushion rubber pads. So for Sepia Saturday 263 - post your posts on or around Saturday 24th January 2015 - we invite the themers amongst you to look out your old photographs which feature adverts, horses, carts or any variety of strange and curious objects.

Before you canter off in the direction of your weekly Sepia Saturday post, cast an eye over what is to come in the next couple of weeks.

264 : Coastline, aerial photographs, looking down on things

265 : Arts, crafts, potters and classrooms

That is all for the future. We don't want any slipping. Get out your air cushion pads, post your post and then link it to the list below. Order by name - and the name is Sepia Saturday.

I surprised myself and found something after all. A heading and column from a 1894 issue of The Freeman with a column of people searching for their lost relatives from slave days.

By hook or by crook ... I finally decided what to write about this week, and hope that a few people will read it, despite my tardiness.
