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.

Hats off to the 19th and early 20th century. They sure had some innovation and creativity in terms of invention.

Maybe we should be more humble about our era.
