This week Sepians are sailing down the river of memories and have called in port to view this old archive photograph of Tonsberg in Norway which is brought to us by the Flickr Commons stream of VESTFOLDMUSEENE, NORWAY. For the sepia themes amongst us there is a dockyard of potential themes : harbours, boats, warehouses and the whole concept of looking down on things.
Often my plans are a bit on the grandiose side and require much in the way of research, so I scrapped plans to do a mega-history of the New York City waterfront and harbor of the 1840s and 1850s. Instead, I am going to stick to "tried and true" and "simple and doable" - unless I get sidetracked as I am wont to do. The following photo is in my archives by the Courtesy of the Klamath County Museum.

These days Lake Ewana looks more like it did in the 1874, with eagles taking wing above the lake and wild life teeming around the shoreline - but no log booms.
Now paddle on down to see what things Sepians have chosen to look down upon, view from the water, boats, shorelines, and such.
