#Sepia Saturday 99 – Glamorous Granny (no, not busty blonde mother of 6)

In the infamous( (I like to think) album, I found this photo of Granny (on the right – a vision in blue) and her nameless chum, being terribly sensible compared to previous photos.  This photo has been converted into a postcard, although it was never posted and there’s nothing on the back.  I don’t have any musical relatives (or any photos of them being musical) and no relatives who were pictured sitting on barrels, so I’ve gone my own way, as I do…

Glad to see that Granny has a hanky at hand, just in case.  The young lady on the left must have been a significant part of Granny’s life, as she appears in another postcard, looking equally elegant in the snow.  Well, at least you can’t see her grey socks and lace-ups in the following one, and she has a cute canine accessory.

Through the wonders of T’interweb, I have made contact with a “cousin” in Canada, and she has yet another cousin visiting next week, so hopefully I’ll be able to share Granny’s pictures with folk who have their own relatives starring in them :-D

Hurray for the Interweb :-)  I can hardly wait!

SEPIA SATURDAY is a weekly meme which encourages bloggers to publish and share old images and photographs. All that is required is for contributors to post an old image (it doesn’t have to be in sepia) and provide a few words in explanation. If you could provide a link back to the Sepia Saturday Blog and visit as many of the other contributors as you can, it would also be appreciated. There is no weekly theme, as such, but some people like to use the archive image published with the weekly call as a kind of theme. There is no requirement to adopt such an approach : the choice of image is entirely up to you. Once you have published your Sepia Saturday post, add a link to that post to the Linky List published each week and leave a comment to let everyone know you are joining in.

    I love the coloring and your granny’s outfit in the first photo. The second one reminds me of a snow picture I have of myself and the black standard poodle my family had. It also reminds me of the “storm coats” that were popular when I was a child.

    I love the “attitude” in the snow picture. The world was hers for the taking I think.

  3. Bob Scotney says:

    The second photo is interesting. The dog looks like a black labrador and with the pose the lady is in they seem to be in a shooting party.

    I see what you mean about sensible. Compared with the ‘tree’ and ‘hand on knee’ photos it’s almost restrained. Both pictures are lovely though and the coat in the secondone looks just the thing for a cold day. Very stylish and warm.

  5. Martin says:

    A real touch of class. I especially like the second photograph.

    Maybe your visiting cousin will solve the mystery of grannies friend.
    They’re both lovely. I especially like the second photo with the model pose and the handsome dog.

    Great fashion statements!

    Two very attractive and well dressed ladies. I remember the colorizing of photos. I have a couple of old ones myself. That looks like a very expensive outfit on the second photo. I enjoyed this post.

    Indeed, three cheers for the Interweb! Not only does it allow interested relatives to share images of their common ancestors : but allows everyone to have an insight into interesting lives and times which are now sadly gone.

    A wonderful hand-coloured photograph. I suspect that this was of the type which you could buy a colouring kit and do at home. I don’t suppose it’s a Jerome photo, is it?

    I like the trench coat!
