This week’s prompt picture comes from the Powerhouse Collection via Fickr Commons, titled ‘A Man And His Shoe Repair Stall’ and dated 1930. It’s a hand-painted lantern slide but there is no other information given. You can let your imagination run free with your responses to this one. Street traders, roadside artisans, menders, cobblers, tools-of-the-trade, hand-colouring and lantern slides - or you could celebrate Sepia Saturday’s 250th Edition with a party!
Of course you don’t have to theme and can simply post an old picture or two with a link back to Sepia Saturday, on or around 18 October. Enter your (direct) link to your own blogpost below and leave us a comment please. Then take a trip to other Sepians to see what wares they have displayed; and remember to show your appreciation of their efforts with a word or two in their comments section.
Don’t forget that there is a Facebook group for Sepia Saturday contributors. Why not join us as we have a lot of fun and post some interesting items there. You will need to have posted on Sepia Saturday at least once; then you’ll be given a warm welcome.
