Sepia Saturday - Bicycles!



To join Sepia Saturday, you don't need to ask, you don't need to apply. Just post an old photograph and add a few words of explanation. Once you have your post up, add a link to that specific post to the weekly Linky List on the Sepia Saturday Blog.  Oh, and 'Old" is what you want it to be.

This is a picture of a lady by the name of Angelica Scatliffe who was a great friend of my Aunt Tula's.  Apparently, she loved whizzing about our small town on that bike.

  2. This is the first bike I've seen this week that has a guard on its chain. I was always in trouble for getting oil on my trousers!

  6. Welcome to Sepia Saturday. Angelica has this "hurry-up-with-your-camera-I-need-to-go"-look in her eyes.

  9. All the lovely bicycle photos this week has made we wish I'd ridden a bike as an adult like my three adult children do.

  11. An interesting first contribution to Sepia Saturday, thank you. Where was it taken, I wonder? Those robust shutters are telling!

    1. Hello Brett! Glad you liked it - it was taken in Road Town, Tortola but not sure of the year - maybe the 1940s?

  12. Great to have you as part of Sepia Saturday Eugenia. It is a small world indeed, for I suspect we know many of the same people in the BVI. Roger Burnett is my brother, Diana Wheatey is just one of my nieces and nephews on the island.

  13. Hi, Alan! Wow, it IS a small world! I do certainly know Roger though I haven't set eyes on him for many a year! Do tell him 'hello' for me - I have one of his books, you know.

  16. A super photo for our Sepia theme and I think I have Angelica's bicycle in my basement! She has a proper British ladies bike with fenders and enclosed chain. But about 10 years ago in the middle of the night, someone abandoned this exact bicycle in front of my house. It is a Raleigh 3-speed in black which dates by the serial number to 1952. How a vintage British bicycle would get to the mountains of North Carolina is more a mystery than how Angelica would acquire one, now that you reveal where she is, but it's fun for me to recognize such details in a vintage photo.

    1. Thank you very much for that info, Mike, because I'm clueless as to bikes. When Bob (above) mentioned the guard on the chain, I squinted at the photo to try to understand what he meant (and figured out it was that thingy by her foot). I once had a bike, myself, but I think I was about eight or nine - I remember it because it was very pretty - pink with a white basket in front threaded through with plastic flowers.
