Alan from Sepia Saturday says:
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)
I'm finding it very hard to stay on theme this week from my own collection. All I have are awful debutante photos from my mother's collection which I know the girls would not want me to share they all look so unutterably miserable and the gowns are too frightful.
I have a photo of my uncle with the short back and sides I suppose. But he died before 1950 so that's no good.

Then I have this funny slide of a group of my father's student friends all on a field trip checking out places - this one is of Canberra....they all have short back and sides too I suppose...

A view can be a kind of a juke-box can't it? No, not really.
So I had to turn to Flickr and got these....
Beautiful, but wishing for something that isn't there. Or am I just projecting....? What do you think?
It's those wretched streamers, that's what it is....they remind me of people leaving on cruise ships, going away to have a fabulous time...

Don't say goodbye to the 1950s just yet...check out other interpretations here.
