Sepia Saturday - Aug 3


Sepia Saturday

I'm posting at Sepia Saturday today.

The suggested theme is:



188 : A tall ship, a small lighthouse, and a windmill feature in this 1900-ish photograph of Littlehampton. But there are also cycles, ladies with hats and men with caps.

Thank goodness I managed to find a bicycle in the corner of this photo with my maternal uncle, aunt and their cousin, Derek Brennan in Dublin. it looks like my grandmother's house on Mourne Road.
UPDATE - I think this is around 1950.

  4. I like photos like this where children seem to freeze only an instant for the camera, and are about to run off. About what year?

  5. This picture looks like it would be a good story starter.

  6. I wonder if these kids shared the bike or if each had one.

  9. Rendered house walls and a great set of braces. We don't seem to take such attractive photos these days.

  10. I love the photo. It looks like one boy has a makeshift belt while I love the braces on the other boy. Both with too big shorts that they can wear for many years.

    My grandmother said she made long shorts just above the knee for her boys as if she made longer pants, they always put holes in the knees!
