Sepia Scenes - another steeltown scene
For Mary's Sepia Scenes, I am back to Steubenville, the hub of activity in Jefferson County. This shot is old and scratched, and is beyond my repairing it. Therefore, sepia enhances the picture and adds a bit of bronze and ages the photo in a subtle way. I will assume this to be around 1948-1949, when televisions were still a novelty, and assume this was his first (naturally, it was a Motorola). It was nice to have the TV when it was new, and check out that beer in the stylish pilsner glass.
Sepia really enhances B&W. For more sepia gems, check out Mary's meme!
