Happy Easter to all Sepians !!

This photo is the Sepia Saturday prompt this week. We bloggers try to follow the theme, in some vague way, as a seed in our thoughts. Sepia Saturday provides bloggers with an opportunity to share their history through the medium of photographs. Historical photographs of any age or kind become the launchpad for explorations of family history, local history and social history in fact or fiction, poetry or prose, words or further images. Click here to learn more.

I do keep an eye on Sepia Saturday now and again, one day I may find time to make more frequent contributions.

Meanwhile, as a tiny contribution, Here are my great aunts Muriel and Constance Dean in October 1898. And in case you wondered why they are dressed so well, I also include a photo of her father John Dean outside his shop in St. Peter's Street, Derby.
