Sepia Saturday 118; Going out;


Probably 1932
My mother, Rosalia, right and her older sister Victoria. 
I guess on a Sunday outing.



Probably 1938

My aunt Helene her daughter Gerlinde and her nephew Joseph;
I do not know where they went, perhaps to a wedding or to a christening.



Summer 1948

  2. In the top photo they are dressed up but they don't look very happy to have their picture taken.

  4. I do love seeing people all dressed up for a special occasion. You and your sister in your Sunday best look lovely,and the wedding shot is a study in fashion.

    BTW, I’m not sure if you are aware that you still have word verifcation switched on. There’s a general rebellion to do away with it as it’s become very complicated and seems to be putting people off commenting. I got rid of my mine a couple of weks ago and it’s been fine. Have a good weekend.

    1. Little Nell; thank you for your comment, also for the tip to unable word verification, they are a nuisance; I did it and I hope it works!

  5. These are all precious, but the one of you and your sister is adorable. I really like Joseph's outfit, though I doubt you will get any boy to wear it today.

    Have a great weekend!

  9. Like everyone else I am fascinated by Joseph's knickerbockers, they look to have plenty of growing room. It a great photo of your school reunion, looks like you were enjoying a laugh about a past event.

  10. Joy, yes, they look certainly big enough. Yes, school reunions always interesting and fun to meet up with old school buddies.

  11. Some great pictures and a reminder that "going out" was normally a great occasion and the type of occasion that would see the camera brought out. But in that first photograph the lady on the left (Victoria?) looks so sad.

    1. Alan, thank you, yes she looks a bit sad and I think my mother looks concerned. We will never know.

  12. So sweet, back in the days people dressed up for going out, or for sure anytime they left the house, like your photos show! Today some people wear jeans to church!

    1. Karen S. It is a bit sad in away that people do not dress up the way they did. I am still in the habit of dressing up, even for shopping! but it gives me a chance to wear clothes which I don't want to wear around the garden or the dog. I think wearing nice clothes makes one feel good!

  13. First, I adore the rose photo that welcomes us to your blog. A common theme is how we all had our Sunday best and how dressing up really meant dressing up! Nice photo spread.
