Sepia Saturday 267 : 21 February 2015


Our tour of the world's photographic archives has become a newsworthy event: this week on Sepia Saturday our theme image is being reported on the radio. To be precise it is on Finnish Radio - or rather Finnish Radio is on it. This 1937 photograph from the archives of the Finnish Radio Company shows engineers on the roof of an outside broadcast van. For those looking for a theme there is radio, broadcasting, roofs or people doing unusual things on motor vehicles. You might also like to run with the little and large comparison suggested by the two vehicles alongside each other. Whatever you decide to post, all you have to do is to post it, on or about Saturday 21st February and add a link to the list below.

As we have a few moments before the next programme is due to start, why not take a look at the theme images for the next couple of weeks.

268 : Street Parades / Revolutions / Russia / Banners

269 : Music / Dance / Polkas / Violets

Before the next programme gets under way, here is a short non-commercial break. Why not get the Sepia Saturday Magazine - the on-line Flipboard magazine that contains all of our Sepia Saturday posts. Flipboard is available on smartphones, tablets - and now - PC's and iMacs: and it is free of charge. You can find Sepia Saturday either by searching for the magazine or by following this link for the desktop version. Sepia Saturday Magazine - you know it makes sepia sense.

And now, ladies and gentlemen, it is time for Sepia Saturday 267

From a big city in Texas to my own smaller life, I share some b&w stills from home movies of "Mother-Daughter" home sewn dresses.

I have a car with sound equipment and memories of an election campaign in 1962.

I’ve gone with the little and large theme - a little boy with large feet.

Large and small -- and like Sharon's, mine is short and sweet.

Thanks very much for the inspiration image. Little and large seems to be a very popular theme, and I've gone down that path as well with 'Great & Small': The Windmills of Skerries. BTW, as usual my post will not appear until Saturday. Cheers!

I have some postcards of midgets and Midget Village at the Chicago World's Fair.

Irisheyes - your connection above isn't working.

Size matters, or at least it did in the photo I've posted here.
