What on earth is happening in this 1904 photograph from the Collection of the National Library of Ireland? If you look at the Flickr Commons page for the image, it is full of information about who it features, where it was taken, what the weather was like that day : but it is strangely quiet on the greatest mystery of all, what are they doing? There clearly is an Edwardian lady and a young lad in a sailor suit and they seem to be filling a bag with sand. But why? If you are hoping to follow a theme this week you can go with the seaside, with the sand, with the sandbag, with the sailor suit or you can work out what they are playing at and match that. Whatever you choose to do, just post your post on or around Saturday 17th May 2014 and then add a link to the list below.
Before the sands of time run out for Sepia Saturday 228, you might like to take a look forward at what is coming over the next few weeks.
229 : School dorms, famous beds, pennants
230 : Long hair, long hair and errrr - long hair
231 : Who says we don't take note of suggestions. So here it is - Open Theme
Saturday. As long as its old and an image - post it.
Now that gives you something to think about, doesn't it? But there again you will need something to think about whilst you are filling all those sand bags.
