Sepia Saturday challenges bloggers to share family history through old photographs.
This week’s Sepia Saturday image features tall ships, a lighthouse, a windmill, and people strolling along the harbor of Littlehampton. Although my photos contain few of those images, I do have some of people waiting along the water.
My great aunt Helen Killeen Parker seems to have been a popular gal in the late 19-teens and early twenties in Portsmouth, Virginia, always on some sort of outing. What this occasion was and when are unknown to me.
It resembles a fishing boat, but Helen and her friends don’t appear to be doing any fishing.
It’s interesting that they were sitting on top of the boat.
The channel appears narrow, so I wonder if they were boating through the Dismal Swamp.
Since I have no answers, I will have to wonder what this funny little boat was and where it went.
Cruise on over to Sepia Saturday for more tales of boats, lighthouses, and windmills.
