Sepia Saturday 209 : 4 January 2014


All that Christmas and New Year stuff is behind us and we drive, full speed ahead, into 2014. And our vehicle of choice is a cross between a stretch limo and a country bus. There are plenty of potential prompts to be found in this image which comes from the collection of the Royal Australian Historical Society on Flickr Commons : cars, buses, dams, men in white coats. As usual, all you have to do is to post a post based around an old image on or around Saturday 4 January 2014 and then link that post to the Linky List below. Try and visit as many of the other people posting as possible and thus keep the Sepia Bus moving.

Here is a look ahead at the theme images for the rest of January so that you have plenty of time to plan ahead.


210 : Old photographs hidden away in a book.


211 : A soldier from the Great War - 100 years after the event.


212 : Let it snow and get out those skis.

You might like to think about those future calls whilst you wait for the bus. But don't wait too long, there it is, coming around the corner.

My post has a large dam and transportation.

‘Stretching' the point a bit but the elongated vehicles in the prompt reminded me of some wonderful WW1 images. Happy New Year everyone.

Doug Peabody said...

I'm in the transport category at least! :)

Tutato; drive carefully around the bend.

I saw the post postcardy made and just had to link to a similar one I made last week. I promise I will start looking for some original and even sepia material for the future.

It is so hot here in Brisbane....I am dreaming of cooler weather...I think I need to jump in a dam somewhere to cool off....

Some later readers have not been able to access my original post - some glitch somewhere, so I have published it again under ScotSue 2. I hope this is successful.

Kristin said...

Not on topic. About my feelings on finding my 2 X great grandparents and their children being passed on to the wife of Alexander Cleage in his 1860 will.

Boobook said...

Published the blog then forgot the linky to Sepia Saturday. Maybe I need a bus holiday.

Joan said...

Made it before the "witching hour" -- at least here in the US Pacific Northwest.
