in the heels of mystery

Pennadomo,Abruzzo,Italia,Pescara.

The challenge in this week's Sepia Saturday is especially cunning! My take on the theme is 'views from the back'It's panto season..so, "He's Behind You!" ?

The photo i share is from 1950's Halifax.My Mother-in-Law hangs up here washing-line with my Bro-in-Law helping.....
.
"............after a  while we took in the clothes Nobody said very much Just some old wild shirts and a couple pairs of pants ..."{Bob Dylan~Clothes Line Sage}

You know,"old photo" is a relative term.This week Karl (finally!) sent me a series of photos he took on an evening Pub crawl in Halifax last February. You can see all the photos here.The one I show here is Me:Ken & Phil the x-Fireman .[Alan! Bring a camera to the Big 6 !!!!!]
Next Thursday I meet up with Don in Manchester.We go to Salford to see the  Peter Blake Exhibition in Saford's Lowry.Expect some photos!

I really enjoyed the music! The first picture is really cute. I'm glad you explained it because at first I feared the child would pull that rope and out would come a pair of underwear.

Brian Miller said...

ha...cute pic with him playing out the line behind her man...

That hanging up the clothes line photo is a real keeper! Thanks for sharing it.

Alan Burnett said...

And that clothes line would be none of your fancy plastic coated stuff, but good, old-fashioned, honest-to-goodness, rope. I will bring a camera to the Big 6, but should it be a good, old-fashioned, honest-to-goodness, film-loading, shutter clicking thing?

When I first looked at the first picture I thought your Brother-in-Law was trying to disturb his Mother's balance, noticing she is standing on one leg only. But on second thought no loving son would do that to his Mum...
And Alan, you might want to bring your magnesium flash unit.

It was my job at our first house to put up the rope washing line between two posts - as Alan says, rope not plastic. You mother-in-law must has a loop in her hand or else it is a very short line. If your brother-in-law thought it was a skipping rope I can understand why she is on one leg.

Love this post. Love it. Great Dylan song, and the photo is perfect.

What a great picture, and I liked how you interpreted this week's theme, Tony. I enjoyed the song too!

What a great find this photo is. The pose is exactly the same as the man in the truck. I so admire all of the Sepia Saturday people who know their old photos so well and can retrieve them for the prompt. The Dylan song is a perfect grace note for your post.

Oh what fun, I always enjoy a good Art or Pub or Poet's Crawl- whatever crawl about town it is, it's usually quite fun, and you get to see the insides of lots of old buildings that you might other wise never see! The first photo of your in-laws so precious, especially when he's such an adorable little... (hmm was he up to no good?!!! hahaha) !

Postcardy said...

Mother-in-Law looks like she is missing a leg. Brother-in-law looks like he is trying to hook the other leg.

brilliant, I love that

Little Nell said...

Wonderful pic Tony and who was the clever person who thought to snap it I wonder?

Tony, I don't know if you've been following the dialogue about word verification on the FB page, but you still have it switched on!! As you have comment moderation too, please would you consider removing WV - it's driving some of us nuts! (She asked politely)

Dominic Rivron said...

Great photo of your mother-in-law. It would make a great caption competition - but I can't think of one.

Mike Brubaker said...

I never thought of it before, but somehow Dylan's voice and music has a Sepia quality with more subtle shades of gray (and blue) than bright primary colors. A good choice.

tony said...

Sorry Nell: WV is a pain I know.I had a plague of Small (a curse on UGG boots& Viagra!)So I reluctantly put the WV on.Tell you what......later this week I will try again without it..see if the spammers have gone.Sorry for inconvinence .T.

Your music is always perfect.

My imagination is running away with me regarding what that little 'un could have done with that washing line. LOL

Lovely's Blot said...

I loved the link of the music and the photo.

TICKLEBEAR said...

An unexpected twist on the them, which can be expected from you.
Love it!!

She would need a stepladder not that little stool to get the line high enough. I always wondered how people string their lines between the rows of houses, must take some cooperation with the neighbors.
