Sepia Saturday 154 – water and boats

Being rather pushed for time, I’ve recycled a post from January of last year.  It features water and boats.  Apologies for the blatant cheatery, but I don’t think my Saturday Sepian  friends will have seen this one before as it was written for a Geneabloggers meme.

I hope you are all having a good weekend – it has snowed here and is icy, but the stove is going well, so I am cosy.  Hopefully you are keeping warm too :-)

Visit my Sepia Saturday pals with your hot water bottle and check out what they came up with from the inspirational photo for this week.  Remember to leave a comment if you are entertained/amused/appalled!

  1. The second gentleman from the left must have been the daredevil of the four, just wearing swimming trunks. And you were right, I had never seen this post.

    Yep, new to me too and a pleasure to read. Wearing a tie and suit while fishing seems to have been quite common back then. I wonder when people stopped thinking that was a good idea.

    Very nice post Jo! The people in the photos looked like they were having fun. And yes, that last photo must have been a true family treasure.

    Super set of photos ending with the best – a gentleman fishing, in tweeds and smoking a pipe, so contented it oesn’t matterif he doesn’t catch anything.

    Hot water bottle:) It was nearly 40C (102F) here this week.
    Lovely photos. I remember my grandfather going out to do farm work in a suit jacket – it was too old to wear in public but too good to throw out.

    Certainly a fun set of photographs and I’m sure they had fun despite the cold water,
    even in those swimsuits!!! :)

    Lovely photos. The attire for tennis and fishing reminds me of the photos I have of my grandmother camping in a dress.
