Sepia Saturday: Christmas Edition

Ho, ho, ho. This week’s prompt invites Sepia Saturday participants to sift through images looking for pictures that bring back Christmas past. Here’s what I’ve found.

First an audio treat. A holiday radio program “Cinnamon Bear” from 1937 is available here.

Christmas cards are so welcome. The real thing beats ecards, which I have sent, any day.

Look at the toys. Simple yet beautiful still. Batteries not needed.

I’ve never seen a scene like this one above, though I’ve been to San Antonio’s Gran Posada.

Sepia Saturday

The prompt this week made me think of telephones. I think old phones have a certain charm. My favorite phone at home is a faux rotary phone. I think the new fangled cordless and cell phones lack a certain something.

Sepia Saturday

My other blog is feeling up with photos, so I’m moving my Sepia Saturday entries over here.

This week we have some uniformed police officers from Ireland to inspire us.

Dr. Cary T. Grayson and Captain Edward McCauley, Jr., 1919

I’m going with the uniforms and offering the photo above from the Woodrow Wilson Library.  The captain’s sword looks like it’s stuck in his coat pocket. The captain looks more congenial than the serious doctor. That’s my take. What’s yours?
