Sepia Saturday 273 : 4th April 2015


What better way to spend an Easter Holiday weekend than to take a ride in the park. These ladies are enjoying a Springtime ride in Battersea Park - but whether it is Central Park or Waterfront Park, Myers Park or La Fontaine Park, it makes no difference if you want to join in the fun. Just choose an old image - either connected to the theme image or not - and share in in a Sepia Saturday post. Post your post on or around Saturday 4th April 2015 and add a link to the list below. Our theme image comes from the British Library collection on Flickr Commons and is taken from a book entitled "The Municipal Parks, Gardens and Open Spaces of London" So as a sepia Easter present you have a range of potential themes to follow - cycling, parks, long skirts, book and newspaper illustrations - the choice is yours.

Before you push off - so to speak - take a look at what our next couple of themes are so you can be ready to recycle an appropriate old image.

274 : Coal / Power / Horses / Carts

275 : Cables / Wires / Ladders / Workers

So have a great Easter and get those sepia cycles on the road.

It's been a while, and I'm not sure how long I can keep up with regular contributions, but I'll give a bash anyway.
