Sepia Scenes - Suburban


Sepia Scenes is back, and the past beckons yet again! Any B&W monochrome from an era where a sepia edit is fine. It is early 1964 in winter, but a day where cold does not impede kids playing outside. The place is the suburbs on Wickham Drive in East Hartford, CT. 


I stand astride my Columbia single-speed bicycle, where details of the era abound, from children playing jump rope; the unused tricycle sits on the drive; the neighbor's 1958 Rambler is parked; our family vehicle, a 1963 VW microbus is behind the play; and behind the rope is the back end of a unique second car, the French made Simca Arondeis parked. 


The past comes alive here in sepia. And I remember lots of it still...Sepia works in any era, so see more at Mary's monochrome meme!

It looks so familiar - it could be a photo from my family photo book too :)
We had an Opel Kapitän 1958 :)
