SepiaSaturday November 28, 2015

Hello Fellow Sepians, I thought I would submit this picture taken from the Our Miramichi Heritage Photo site.  It depicts three girls around our park fountain in what was known as Newcastle, around the turn of the century.   We have amalgamated into a city called Miramichi since early 1990's.

  1. A beautiful photo. I wish white dresses with black stockings had been fashionable in my time. I like the look.

  2. Park fountains are still popular. They look cool and refreshing in the summer, but sad and abandoned at his time of year when the water is off. for the winter.

  3. Lots of old New England towns have fountains like that -- nice to know that my neighbors to the north have 'em, too. It's a wonderful photo, Rosie!

  6. A wonderfully atmospheric old photograph. Miramichi sounds much more interesting than Newcastle.

  7. Fountains like this make a fine backdrop for a photo, almost a theme by themselves.

  8. "...A theme by themselves.", what a great idea! I wish I had a fountain like this one in my nearby park instead of the strange spray of water in the middle of a sluggsh pond.

  9. Lovely photo. I can imagine those girls skipping off to go enjoy some lemonade or ice cream.

  10. Pragmatic me is thinking of how those dark stockings were held up...also after the discussion of socks falling down in shoes of more modern girls on another blog. Anyone know how the girls kept those knee length stocking up?

    1. I used to wear a thick rubber band and I used to gather the stocking top and roll it down over the rubber band. I had to pull it up quite often......
