Sepia Saturday

Each week Sepia Saturday challenges bloggers with an image from long ago. This week we see three men wearing hats at a cattle sale. One man’s smoking. So there are a lot of choices for bloggers this week. I decided to search for cattle sales. I found photos on Flickr Commons, an archive of heaps of old images from all over the world.

  1. Both in the prompt photo and your photos, the hats worn at the cattle sales were either flat caps or fedoras which struck me a little funny till I realized the sales were taking place in Australia and Wales. In the U.S. – especially in the western states – the hats worn at cattle sales and auctions are primarily cowboy/western style hats except the nice dressy sorts, not the straw. 🙂
