Sometimes I think if it wasn’t for Sepia Saturday I would never acquire more old photos. Then I realize that’s just plain crazy talk, but that’s beside the point. One thing I like about Sepia Saturday is it makes me consider what the prompt images mean, or how they inspire me. This week’s prompt image shows a couple gypsy caravan type wagons, advertising birds, beasts and reptiles! After a good long search through the bin at my antique shop source, I have beasts and birds, even a fish image, but no reptiles. Enjoy.
Big Horn Sheep, Banff, Canada
This is a nice real photo postcard, probably part of a set showing wildlife of Canada. Note the number 42 in the lower right corner.
Climb aboard, kiddies
Here’s a snapshot on really flimsy paper showing three small children on a horse being held by a woman. They are quite obviously in a barnyard or stable yard. The roof of a building is hidden in the trees behind the children.
Checking on the herd
Here are two images of a woman and cattle. In the upper image there is a small child just behind her left shoulder out in the field with her. You can see a barbed wire fence and then a stone fence in the distance. The lower image shows a woman holding her bucket of milk from her cow. The photo was taken in a dooryard, it seems. You can see the house in the background.

And, last but not least….
Some people call these travel trailers a caravan. :-)
