Sepia Saturday

Sepia Saturday

I'm posting at Sepia Saturday today.

The suggested theme Snow, snow and more snow. But there is also lamp-posts, long coats and those ubiquitous barrels again.

What a perfect topic this week as we sit in sunny Las Vegas while all our family and friends are snowed in back in Toronto!

This was an easy one for me to choose - snow. in fact I had too many photos to choose from since we grew up in Canada.

This is Montreal winter 1957-58, Durocher Street, our first winter in Canada. I'm the older sister!

My parents emigrated to Canada from Dublin Ireland in 1957 and we spent our first winter in Montreal with my maternal aunt and uncle.

  8. Snow, fun for kids, until it all turns to the slushy mess that has to be cleaned up.

  9. What a charming picture iof the two of you. I don't blame you for wintering in the sunshine. That's why I emigrated!

  10. It's a great photo. So many of the pictures I have seen which feature Montreal also seem to feature snow. I can understand why you are tempted towards warmer climes.

  12. I remember tugging,pulling and zipping my children into the snowsuits of that era. Quite often, once they were finally outfitted for a tumble in the snow, they had to go to the bathroom, which meant we could go thru all the tugging, pulling and zipping all over again. BTW that is an impressive hunk of snow;
