Happy Christmas To Sepians Everywhere

The basis of my Sepia Saturday Christmas Card this year is a picture that must have been taken at some kind of institutional Christmas Party. Searching the faces for someone familiar, I eventually found my mother holding my brother in her arms. That led me to an estimation of the date, which must have been around 1945/46 when Roger was either two and a half or three and a half. I suspect it will have been a works Christmas Party and that would take me to the Bradford commercial printers and packaging engineers, Field Packaging, where my father worked at the time.


  1. Hope you are having restful, delicious, silly and love-filled holidays, Alan!

  2. I haven't done a Sepia Saturday post in quite a while, but I hope that holiday wish applies to me, too! Back atcha, Alan!

  3. My best wishes to you and yours, Alan, for a new year full of cheer and happiness.
