Running late this week. Yesterday I had a fun day at an Italian cooking class, then a birthday party for a three year old. Two very different activities, but both great fun. So on to Sepia Saturday for this week.
The theme this week is 'strange contraptions' as can be seen by this three wheeled car used in Ireland last century.
I like to use photos from my collection, so was very pleased when I found this photo in one of the family albums. There was no name on the photo, but I think it must have been of a family friend. The woman standing next to the invalid in the wheelchair looks like she may have been a nurse or companion.
I'm guessing that the rather beautiful woman in the wheelchair was a widow, judging by her clothes and bonnet.
With time up my sleeve I went online and found a couple of other 'ladies' in their 'chariots'.
