Sepia Saturday~The Summer of 1936

Saturday, July 16, 2011

 A summer's day in 1936 spent on the River some where in Toronto Canada, Three brothers enjoy a day of fishing and Clowning around. L to R: James age 10, Harry 24 and Edward 22.
   Uncle Jim soaking up sun and the  attention of 2 unknown females.
I wonder what my Uncles talked about as they stood on the banks of the river casting their lines into the water, would they have said more or done things differently that day if they would have known before the end of Summer one of them would no longer be with us?                                             
Uncle Harry with the catch of the Day.

Whoever took the pictures had a good sense of composition...

That’s so sad. Rather poignant to see them enjoying that wonderful leisure time together and knowing what fate had in store.

That's a sad story about Harry. I can't imagine an injured person being carried to a doctor's office today, especially at 1 a.m.!

What a wonderful time captured on film. Harry was gorgeous ... such a sad ending. He looked like he enjoyed life!

A lovely set of photos capturing a day by the river. Such a sad end to the summer.

Yup, we live a life of "what ifs" which if we think about them can paralyze us. It's good they all had good memories. Very sad.

Uncle Jim looks like quite the ladies' man in the 2nd photo. The brothers look like they were enjoying themselves in these photos and it's good someone had a camera handy. The surviving brothers could look back at them to be reminded of pleasanter days.

Harry's crash looks horrendous. It's not surprising he didn't survive it. It's so sad to learn of the deaths of people when they are so young.

Such a delightful mixture of images and words : both of which set the mind a'wandering.

A fine set of photos even if there is a sad message here. They all were enjoying themselves.

Great pictures. What is that in Harry's right hand in the last photo?
