Trumpet fanfares : My Lords, Ladies and Gentlemen. Welcome to that celebration of old and curious photographs that is known throughout the world as Sepia Saturday. Indeed, welcome to a very special Sepia Saturday, because four years and 199 themes ago, Sepia Saturday was born. And we are celebrating this important anniversary by asking everybody who has ever joined in with Sepia Saturday to look back on their contributions and choose a favourite one. Simply republish that favourite Sepia post and we will gather together all the contributions and publish them in a little "The Best Of Sepia Saturday" book which will be available for anyone to buy on-line. As you would expect from Sepia Saturday, there are very few rules and regulations involved in this special Sepia Saturday post. It can be any of your Sepia Saturday posts, but unfortunately we will have to limit it to one per participant. If you would like to amend or update the post, that is fine so long as it remains recognisably related to the original post. I would also like to include a short paragraph about each of the contributors - something along the lines of the Blogger profiles that appear on most of our blogs.
I am a Johnny come lately to Sepia Saturday having only been aware of its existence since February this year and having made the grand total of 20 contributions.
I have chosen my first contribution (Sepia Saturday 162) largely because it is short and sweet and also because it is a photo I love but know absolutely nothing about...the best kind !
The theme was bicycles or lads with caps on their heads.
This photo was in my grandfather's album (Thomas McLoughlin) so I am hazarding a guess that it was taken in Bathurst or Orange in the early 1900s.
What these lads were doing I have no idea...feel free to extemporise....
Hanging about on a Sunday I reckon.
Happy Anniversary Sepia Saturday!
