Sepia Saturday

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

    I particularly love the picture of the suffragettes – such determination on their faces.

    The hat on the right in the 1913 suffrage parade is a hoot! Incredible!

    That suffragette’s hat IS quite something. She is a rather handsome woman as well. Loved the pet parade. Quite a few pets! And numerous bands – or were some groups filmed more than once from various points of view?

    From military to suffrage to pets – quite a contrast! I’ve heard of pet parades at fetes etc, but never as a street procession with bands and everything else. The children look like they are having fun, with and without their pets. I wonder if the pets enjoyed it?

    Is Mr. W. Albert Wood really Mrs. W. Albert Wood? Hard to tell from the tiny handwriting. But we can be sure of one thing, she/he wasn’t the life of the party that day. A great shot.
