I'm afraid I will have to go for the 'and surprise us with an old photograph of your own choice.....' option for this week's sepia saturday 
Dear sweet Sepians.This week I give you the solitary sport of 'French Fishing'........
This postcard is one of a dozen or so similar ones  being sold at Hebden Bridge Antique Centre
.All cute kids: All individual portraits.
French fish must be very patient and helpful...........?

On Monday Me , Chris & Cathy went to Harrogate. I had a session at it's Turkish Baths .
It must be three years since I last went! It's still a bit like heaven for me ( 160 degrees in the top room).
On Tuesday we went to see the surrealist photos of Lee Miller They were great . It's the first time I have been to The Hepworth. Very disappointed in the building itself.Its an ugly Stalinist mess.

On Wednesday we went to Crawshawbooth Quaker Meeting House . It's over 300 years old & is the oldest Quaker building in the World.It's beautiful & caretaker Phil told me it has a ghost.
 How Cool! A Quaker Ghost......
We spent a couple of hours talking with the caretaker , Phil. Lovely bloke. I hope to visit again ( it's up near my friend Bob in Bacup).
On Thursday I met with Ken in Halifax to drown his birthday.
You can see some of my photo of the week here........
You wouldn't know it from these photos, I suppose, but it's been a very cruel week for me personally.
 view/examine these new photos here

I was curious about the date, 1er Avril, April 1st, on your card. It seems that the French tradition for April Fools Day, which coincides with the end of Lent, is children pinning a paper fish onto the back of unsuspecting adults, “Poisson d’Avril” (April Fish!).

Always love the music on your site. And those Turkish Baths look magnificent. Quakers! I may have discovered some Quaker ancestors recently. Can't be sure. Their name is Storrs from north Lancashire.

Excellent French Fish post card...though hard to believe they could be that easy to catch!
