Sepia Saturday July 19

Sepia Saturday

Today's theme is:
237 : Ballet Dancers, art, poses, chiffon

1959 (?) - Baie Comeau Quebec

My sister posing!! I do love her curls!

I'm guessing it is summer by her dress. Both of us had our birthdays in the summer so those might be birthday cards on the classic TV in the background.

From what I remember those figurines on the TV shelf at the bottom were ballerinas!!  So bonus I got two of the prompts. No art and I think her dress looks like cotton.

  1. Was that a huge speaker on the left of the screen? Your sister was very cute.

    1. It is part of the TV so I guess it would be the speaker, never thought about it. Will have to look it up.

  2. I'll have to take your word for the fact there are ballerinas in the background, but that is a very sweet photo of your sister posing there.

  3. Fantastic photo for the theme. Love the tv set. Wish I could see the birthday cards more closely. I love old cards.

    1. Alex, I have some of those old cards. I'll get them out and post them when we get a suitable topic.

  5. Cute photo. That seems like a strange place and size for a shelf. I wonder whether it was meant for magazines.

  7. So did either of you end up in 'tap and ballet' classes?! A nice photo of your sister (and the old television!)

  8. A neat photo. It's funny how we can use appliances to date photos. Televisions today have no place for display of greeting cards.

  9. I remember the brass tipped legs and the fact that there was no remote contorl, but not a TV with a shelf underneath.

  10. Lovely photograph. It is always the background objects in such photographs that, over time, reveal as much if not more about family history, than the foreground figure. Odd objects can spark memories like burning twigs from a bonfire.

  11. Lovely!

    Also liked to see the TV. My parents in law had one that was very similar when I met my husband. They didn't get a colour TV until the 1980s...................and now look at our TV's..............I wonder what the future holds????

  12. In those days the television really was a piece of furniture; I remember that we had one within a cabinet with doors, so that the screen could be hidden when not needed. That’s a lovely picture of your sister.

  13. Great to hit the prompt twice...not to mention the fun of seeing the environment, which triggers so many memories.

  14. How cool -- not just a girl with curl, but all the clues with the summer dress and birthday cards pinpoint the time. Love it! I bet it was fun playing with the ballerina figurines.

  15. Your sister looks much better than our models for the week. I can almost see the figurines.
