Sepia Scenes - Sandy Sepia
Sepia Scenes returns, and I look back to the past to different people, times and places.
The scan here has deteriorated over time, the photo faded and not sharp. Yet it is an intriguing take.
The people include my father as a child, his mother (Grandma V.) to the right and perhaps his grandmother - which side I am uncertain. Let's assume he at age 4, about 1931.
The place is a beach. I don't imagine it is Atlantic City or Brigantine NJ, as I don't think they dreove that far until the Pennsylvania Turnpike was opened in 1940. I couldn't imagine driving the old US 30 over the Allegheny Mountains.
Perhaps a local Ohio lake or even a beach on Lake Erie. Wherever it may be, the light antique adds a true look of the past, faded as it may be.
