I'm posting at Sepia Saturday today. This week's challenge:

Ah, I remember it well. Get out your smart threads, polish up your brogues, stand around that imposing jukebox and spin those old favourites : "Summer Holiday", "V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N", or maybe "Viva Espana". Yes, it can only mean one thing : I am about to go on holiday again. But, worry not, who is looking after things whilst I am away but my fellow administrator - Marilyn. And the theme image Marilyn has chosen for Sepia Saturday 225 (post your posts on or around Saturday 26 April 2014) shows a group of smart young things stood around a jukebox. If you are theming this week there are endless possibilities - jukeboxes, music, the 1950s are just a few suggestions. All you have to do is to post your post, link your link, and visit your sepia friends. Easy-peasy ...... itsy-bitsy, yellow polka-dot bikini (control yourself, Alan) But before you pack your bag and fly off to Spain (oh, no, that's me isn't it!), here is a preview of what is in store over the next week or two.
I'm going with a travel theme. The man on the left is my grand uncle Alec Brennan and his wife Nora Sweetman is on the right. This would be in the 1950s and they are on a vacation from Dublin to the Isle of Man. The couple with them are the Stewarts as was written on the back of the photo.
I found a link to a repository of photographic representations of holidaymakers in the 1950s taken in Joe's Bar.
Uncle Alec was born in 1911 as listed on the 1911 census.
Some other photos found online taken at Joe's.
Faces of the past, to say the least!ReplyDelete
A refreshing interpretation of this week's theme!ReplyDelete
The last phot looks as though he's going into a Fred Adaire routine. Fun photos.ReplyDelete
I like the Joe's Bar photos. It looks like everyone had a lot of fun there.ReplyDelete
Fun pictures! Apparently, according to the 1911 census, if you're not at least a year old, your age isn't mentioned in months. Interesting.ReplyDelete

That’s the first time Alan’s trip has been used as a prompt! Made me smile.ReplyDelete
Fun times at Joe's Bar.ReplyDelete
Wow! Those are spectacular drinks they serve at Joe's Bar. Better get a designated driver!ReplyDelete
Having your photo taken with giant beer bottles seems to have been popular at one time. I included one such postcard in my article about Blackpool's Pleasure Beach photographer, Charles Howell, a previous Sepia Saturday contribution.ReplyDelete
