What A Picture (A Sepia Saturday Post)


"Bags, caps, hats and wedding smiles: all lined up for the photograph - what a picture!"

This week our Sepia Saturday theme image shows a group of highly decorative women (and a clutch-bag full of equally decorative men) stood attentively for a photography. Groups and photographs go together like .... well, horses and carriages and occasionally lovers and marriages. 

My features group of strange and wonderous people is my family; pictured at the wedding ceremony of my brother, Roger, in 1964. For the sake of posterity, let me name names: from the left, Cousin Ada, Uncle John, Aunty Amy, Aunty Doris, my mother, Uncle Frank, Aunty Miriam, Uncle Harry, Aunty Annie, and, finally, my father. A finer collection of bags, caps, hats and wedding-smiles you could never find.

  5. As group photos go, the photographer caught precisely the best moment when every face filled the lens with joy. That's not easy to do. Would the person with the camera be a certain well-known blogger?

  6. What a wonderful festive sibling photo. I have a 1964 Easter photo of my family and the women were all wearing similar hats. Must have been the trend that year.

  7. Great matchup photo with the ladies and their big purses. Must have been incredibly windy based on Uncle John's tie.
