Sepia Saturday October 1, 2011

This week, I found I could almost match the theme, legs, legs, and more legs, nylons and high heel shoes, almost bang on for the year (1937).  This is a page from my 1938 Sears catalogue.  I was fortunate enough to go to an auction a few years ago and purchased an unopened package of a pair of nylons, complete with the seam up the center.  I still have them, I take them out once and awhile and feel what REAL nylons should feel like......

A day at the beach

 Spent a joyful day at the Beachouse at Youghall Beach, NB with my two sons and daughter.  Even if it is saying "Fall" on the calendar, it was like a beautiful and hot summer's day!
It is not very often I get all three together under the same roof.  It will be more difficult now that my oldest son has moved to the West coast.  We had a pot luck luncheon and enjoyed each other's company.  Nice memories....

Lumber Camps at turn of the Century

Not exactly The Savoy's kitchen!  This would be  a typical kitchen in a lumber camp in New Brunswick at the turn of the century.  It must have been quite a feat to feed so many mouths with the equipment they possessed at the time.

I can't make out if this is breakfast or supper.  Lunch would have been a bagged lunch eaten where they were felling the trees.  I am not too sure of the expression of the first man with light hair, I don't think he looks like he is enjoying the food or maybe he didn't want to be disturbed so he could get on with eating, no doubt these men had quite the appetite!!  Visit other interesting posts at http://sepiasaturday.blogspot.com

Early this morning

I live right across from a cemetary.  Early this morning on my way back from the gym, I looked upwards and saw this.  The fog was just hovering on top of the Miramichi River and the sky was in pink swirls.  I ran the rest of the way home, grabbed my camera and took this shot.  There is so much beauty around us, but sometimes we have to look up and see.  I think that is why I rather walk than drive most of the time.  Life is at a slower pace and you can notice a lot more of your surroundings.

Alan Burnett's "Footprints in the Snow"

This week, I finally framed and hung one of Alan Burnett's photo, entitled "Footprints in the Snow".  Alan graciously gave me permission to copy and print the photo, thanks again Alan.

I just love winter scenes that includes trees.

This photo was taken by a young neighbour of mine, Robbie Stewart, when I used to live on Douglasfield Rd three years ago.  If you could look closer, you can see the icicles on the barbed wire and branches.

So, here is the latest edition to my livingroom wall.  Fits right in, wouldn't you say?

I want to wish all participants a very good weekend!!

A young man dies

The Miramichi area is saddened by the news of the death of Scottie Knowles last night.  He was our local pharmacist, only 31 years old!!  He was in Toronto at the time, he fell off a hotel balcony.

Pierre Trudeau Prime Minister of Canada

This week's theme seems to be a political figure and security.  I chose this picture of Canada's prime minister, Pierre Trudeau at the height of his popularity.  He was prime minister 1968-1979 and again 1980-1984. He died in 2000.  In this picture the officer in the background doesn't seem to like the way the crowd was surrounding Trudeau.  Everyone wanted a piece of him, then later on in his political life, others wanted a piece of him (but for different reasons than to kiss him).  You had to either hate him or love him I guess.htpp://sepiasaturday.blogspot.com

Trip to Miscou Island, New Brunswick

Some boats used for fishing snow crabs put away on shore now that the season is over.

Beautiful flower bed in a park across from the boats above around Shippegan, NB, enroute to Miscou Island.

This is the Atlantic Ocean at Miscou Island, north of New Brunswick.  A switch from last weekend where I saw the Atlantic Ocean from the south of New Brunswick at Grand Manan Island.

Abandoned houses always get my attention, something very lonely about them.  I can't resist taking photos of them.

Cost of children's clothes in 1938-1939

This week's theme included a young girl in a beautiful dress.  I thought I would go through my 1938-1939 Simpson catalogue.  I found this page with the prices, wow, it is amazing how the prices have gone up.  Of course, I realize that our wages have gone up too, but life seemed to be less stressful.  You may need to zoom in to see the prices better.  For more neat pictures, go to Sepiasaturday.blogspot.com
