CANTEEN...
Funny how words shift and evolve, isn’t it? What starts out as one thing soon becomes another… In the 1700s, a canteen was simply a supply store; it’s from
the French ( cantine, a sutler’s
establishment) and Italian ( cantina ,
a wine cellar or shop). But t...

The "before" and "after" shots of the Bank of Victoria are wonderful -- looked pretty formidable in the early shots; not so much now.
This week's Sepia Saturday picture is a prompt for the topic of banking. There are several bankers in my family tree. One of them is my great great grandfather Edward Walter Hughes (1854-1922). E. W. Hughes from Hudson, Helen...

What a great old building, Doug! That kayak shop looks so incredibly teeny in that big space!

SERIOUS BUSINESS...
There are twenty-six
of them, neatly dressed. Hair shining, parted, combed. Two are still sporting high collars, but the rest have the modern,
turned look; a few have vests; one’s in a bow tie, but the others are knotted
and pinned; almost all have French c...

I'd forgotten about the codnapping; my father told me that story years ago! Sometimes I think this Official Something of the State of Maine business is ridiculous...we actually had a bill in the legislature up here to make the Whoopie Pie Maine's official dessert. How silly is that?

GYPSIES, TRAMPS and THIEVES...
Well, I’m not so sure
about the gypsies and the thieves, but definitely tramps – a whole collection
of ‘em.            This photo was taken in the back yard
of my parents’ house up in the West End of Portland, Maine. I think it’s the
fall of 1956; if so, I ...

Australia is enormous! The Brindabella valley shot is beautiful; I'd love to explore your part of the world!
The theme for this week's Sepia Saturday blogging prompt is fish. Saturday is the birthday of my maternal grandfather Hans Boltz, who was born 4 July 1910. At the moment I can't find a photograph of Hans fishing. This is a pi...

NANA, FISHING...
This is my maternal grandmother,
Verna (Vernette)…born in January of 1885 at Bear Island, Queensbury Parish, Province
of New Brunswick, Canada. Her father had both a farm and a general store there—he sold flour,
meal, dry goods, groceries and hardware. Her ...
