For todays Sepia Saturday the theme is reading. I love to read mysteries. I admit I love use bookstores and love the smell of an old book store. Hubby and I owned a used bookstore and for two years had 2 stores.
I searched among my collection of old pictures and found this wonderful cabinet photo of a young lady sitting with her bible in her lap. She is pointing to a certain verse but of course we have no idea what verse.
Bibles are important today but in the 1900s they really an important part of the family life. I have a collection of old family bibles. One of my favorites belonged to one of my great grandmothers.
I hope you enjoy looking at this wonderful old photo. Sadly I have no idea who she is or even where it was taken.
Her dress is full and has puffed sleeves and around her neck is a heart pendant. I would guess she was in her early 20s when taken.
Thanks for stopping by to see my Sepia Saturday posting. I will be sharing this over at Sepia Saturday of UK . Take a moment to peek at what others are sharing. You never know what you will find. Grace
