It’s time for another Sepia Saturday post. This week’s prompt had me searching Flickr Commons for photos of parades way back when.

This week’s Sepia Saturday prompt featured buses and transportation as a theme. If you think about it, it’s amazing all the various conveyances used to help us get around. Here’s a few I found on Flickr Commons.

In honor of Valentine’s Day, Sepia Saturday bloggers are digging through archives to find fitting photos.

I liked this series of Valentines cards that show the bliss and pitfalls of young love from Norway’s National Library’s collection. Date unknown.

This week’s Sepia Saturday prompt made me think of pottery, one of my great loves. The top two images I’ve chosen have illustrations, which I think connect them with their eras in a particular way.
