Sepia Saturday 341 : 30 July 2016
We are down in the gloomy deeps this week on Sepia Saturday. Cold water is dripping from above and it is dark and cold. Yes, its the British summer in Blackpool! No, stop being silly, it's not Blackpool, it is the Speedwell Caverns in Castleton, Derbyshire ...

Sepia Saturday 340 : Time Travel To The Trouville
Our Sepia Saturday theme image this week features a promotional postcard from the Hotel Imperial, Ostend, Belgium. I can match it with another hotel promotional card - this one from the Trouville Hotel, Long Beach, New York. The Trouville was one of many su...

BALTIC BUNDLE 20 : SHIP IN OSLO HARBOUR What better way to conclude a short series of photographs taken on our recent Baltic cruise than with a nautical shot. But these were not perched high on a P&O cruise ship - the ship's health and safety officer would ...

1474 : Curves
BALTIC BUNDLE 19 : NYHAVN, COPENHAGEN, DENMARK A penultimate memory from last months' Baltic cruise. I took this photograph in the tourist-crowded old harbour and, at the time, I am not quite sure what attracted me to the scene. In retrospect I think it mig...

Sepia Saturday 340 : 23 July 2016
I don't know about you but I am feeling tired. It's time to take to my bed. Time to soak up that 1930s style. Our Sepia Saturday theme image this week is an old picture postcard. The description on the Sepia Saturday Flickr Group page reads as follows: "A p...

Gladys In Blackpool : A Birthday Celebration
July 27th was my mother's birthday and she would have been 105 years old today. To mark the day I have dug deep into the box containing old photographic odds and ends and discovered an unframed 35mm colour slide dating back to the 1960s. When scanned and cl...

Pictures From Nowhere : Portrait Of D. M. Thornily (1936)
A strong face of the 1930s emerges from this glass negative. The photographer has managed to pass down the generations that the image was created with an exposure of three seconds at an aperture of f4.8 and he (or she) even tells us that there was a 60 watt...

Postcards From Home : An Edwardian Google Street View
I took delivery of a newly acquired Edwardian picture postcard the other day - a view looking up Manningham Lane in Bradford. There was something rather familiar about the scene, especially the wrought iron canopy on the right of the photograph. After a lit...
