Sepia Saturday 296 : 12 September 2015


By now we will all be aware that Sepia Saturday 300 is fast approaching: and what do you need for a 300th birthday party but a good few bottles of wine? So I thought I would give a little free publicity to the Californian winery of H. Boettcher in the hope that - in way of a little thank you - they might care to sponsor our 300th birthday party and send us a crate or two of wine (just send them to: Alan Burnett, Sepia Towers, Huddersfield UK). And whilst I wait for the wine to arrive you might care to join me in thinking about such things as adverts, wine and old labels as possible themes for your Sepia Saturday 296 post (post your posts on or around Saturday 12th September and add a link to the list below).

Of course, a good bottle of wine needs to breath a little before you drink it, so you have a few moments spare to look ahead to what still lies in the future as far as Sepia Saturday is concerned.


I will reveal what awaits us for SS300 next week.  But for now, let's crack open the wine and get this sepia party started. Cheers!

I'm a Phillumenist, and I didn’t even know!

Watch out, the Barbaras are taking over SS! My post is related just because it's about a publication about my great great great grandfather and today is his birth anniversary!

Putting it over - in another sense, that's what all advertisements try to do, isn't it?

Raise your glasses for a convivial drink!

Wine coasters! And it's been a struggle to post this -- is anybody else having troubles with Blogger?

Not wine but my g-g-grandfather was a distiller of spirits.

Surprising there aren't more cautions on wine bottles. You cannot be too careful these days.

An image of wine bottles on a table in a theatre production is all I can find.

This theme has me stumped, so my contribution is not even close. Instead I've found a musical postcard that deserves to celebrate its centenary.

Just polished mine up in time.

An examination of ecclesiastical menus whilst listening to a military band play - now you weren't expecting that were you!

My Uncle Hugh at Idlewild with a bottle of Old Crow. Almost forgot about this photograph.
