"To mark our 500th call you are invited to return to your favourite Sepia Saturday contribution and re-share it with the world". 
This is a sepia saturday
post and below is a re-post of mine from 14th January 2010.
Photo from Aunt Brenda's album.

More uploads from my family's history here.............more info shortly.........Yesterday,.I met My Brother Zyg with Cathy & my Sister-in-Law Jean at The Bear in Todmorden.We had Lunch &; he gave me several Newspaper cuttings relating to Our Family's presence in North America. (not read them yet!) +137 more photos to share including the one above..........It's kind of tricky sharing & scanning these photos as they are both small & stuck in a photo album.I dont want to damage anything so i will take my time to copy them safely........
Here are the first batch I've uploaded.Something I never knew, My Aunty Brenda was born in Canada. My Grandfather moved there in the early 1900's "looking for gold" :"goldpanning" Whatever........I will give you more detail when i understand it more myself.
I have a postcard from Canada.Later my Grandfather must have moved South, hence these photo from Saranac Lake in upstate New York. .
I have been sharing these photos on facebook with Historic Saranac Lake
Turns Out It's Not Connected with Robert Louis Stevenson.But Interesting,None The Less (just mere coincidence a Family member returned?)......
.Sorry I have been AWOL from blogging .will visit you soon!Check Out Alan's Sepia Saturday for other romps !

That's an interesting album of photos. Like trying to understand a short story from a handful of random sentences. That horse standing on the white float looks very uncomfortable being pulled backwards!

Unfortunately, we live in interesting times,Tony. And sadly on both sides of the Atlantic too. I wish you and yours all the best for 2020.

Beautiful photo's, Tony. For a minute I thought that the man sitting on the very left in the first photograph was Oliver Hardy.
My best wishes for the new year!

I probably commented on that original post Tony - that's how far back we go! Happy New Year to you.
