Happy Christmas


The picture was taken in Sheffield, thirty or so years ago. It is hardly vintage, but with a touch of the magic sepia button it meets the requirements of the Sepia Saturday Christmas Challenge. And it sends seasonal greetings not just to Sepia Saturday participants but to all those who have been kind enough to follow my Blog during 2013. I will be back in the new year, but for now I would like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a happy and peaceful 2014.

  1. Memories of visiting grandmothers in Sheffield; one at Hunter's Bar, the other at Neepsend.

    Have a good one.

  2. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. The dirty melting snow looks kind of dreary, but right now I would prefer it to new snow and ice and more cold weather.

  7. Hi Alan, thanks for a great year of Sepia memories shared with all. Your post reminds me of how the realities of winter are often grey slush everywhere. So far we haven't had any snow, and didn't have any last winter at all.

  9. I like your picture. It brought back memories of my Christmas past when I lived in France – but spent my Christmases in London – my best Christmas times ever. I wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season.

  11. Alan - you're mistaken, surely? I could swear this photo is of the Bridge of Sighs over New College Lane, Oxford.

    Merry Christmas to you, my blogging friend.
