Time to,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Sepia Saturday
Sepia Saturday give bloggers an opportunity to share their family history through photographs.This week's prompt is A CLOCK in what looks like a rather dusty office. I've chosen to focus on TIME.
Time for Church
Time for the Parade
Poulton-le-Fylde Gala Day, Lancashire c.1911.
My mother and aunt Edith and Kathleen Danson are the two little girls in the front of this picture - I love their dresses, hats and boots.
My aunt related that the little boy behind them Thomas ( ?)
had an uncle in America who had sent the banner.
The parade was gathering in front of the wall surrounding St. Chad's Church.
Time for the Train
The old Peebles Railway Station in the Scottish Borders, c. 1908,

I felt sure this postcard would feature a prominent station clock, but not so.
Peebles is 27 miles south of Edinburgh and the first passenger trains ran there 1855, ceasing in 1962. The site of the station is now a car park.
Time for Tea
