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 ...

BOSTON WATER WORKS...
My father was a civil
engineer. So was my grandfather and three more up the line – it runs in the
blood, it seems. John Allen Gould III,
my great-grandfather, was born in Newton Upper Falls (MA) in 1852. When he was
just married, he “took employment” (as th...

DOUBLE DOORS...
I looked at that
Sepia Saturday shot for a long time; I stored it on my desktop and sat down at
my desk every now and then just to have a look at it.           I noticed things: Pin striped suits,
chessboards, chess pieces, tablecloths, chairs with scrolled...

ANNIE SAGAN'S PIE CRUST...
This battered Boston Cooking School Cook
Book, published in 1942, was the only cookbook I remember seeing in my
grandmother’s kitchen; it was the only cookbook that Annie Sagan ever used.           My
mother used to talk about other cooks my grandparents hi...

MY GRANDFATHER, ALL DRESSED UP...
It’s a Ward Flexible Album; a 7x5 black
leather book with “steel gray leaves,” made from Ward’s “puro” paper, and is
“guaranteed not to discolor the photographs.”           It belonged to my grandfather, Gardner Sabin Gould (1886), and it’s full of wonderfu...

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?

WRITING AND WORDS...
Typewriters. Writing. Words. Couldn’t be more appropriate, I thought, for I’ve spent my
week going over galley proofs of my latest novel – pages and pages of type, of
writing, of words: Copyright page, title page, dedication; table of contents,
running head...

Is the man "capturing the queen" or some other chess term? Oh...wait. Is it the King or the Queen that gets checked? At any rate, Doug, this is very, very odd! Love it!

Love it, Doug! What a wonderful grandmother -- and your connection to food and aprons and outright affection are very clear! Oh, the memories we store as children!

I've got some cow cards, too, Doug! From various towns in central and northern Maine -- clearly a big hit!

WALT KELLY and POGO
Cartoons; funny papers, Sunday funnies!           It
doesn’t matter what you call those panels of humor, but we all remember reading
them. For me, it was flat out on the floor on Sunday mornings with the
four-page color comic section: Dick Tracy, Blondie, M...
