Sepia Saturday: Joy's pets


What an interesting theme photo for Sepia Saturday this week. The little girl is intriguing - she looks downcast, or maybe she has a cold.

No monkey photos in my collection but I do have quite a few photos of my husband's Auntie Joy when she was a child in the 1930s. She always had pets of various sorts, and still does.

  1. What a sweet photo of Joy and the magpie, but of all those pets, I'd choose the lamb. That one has a sweet face too.

  2. What a lot of great pets! I'd love to have a cockatoo but they take so much attention. I've had many a parakeet over the years, though, & our kids had the normal run of things: goldfish, hamster, white rat, dogs, & cats - but not all at the same time!

  3. Lucky girl to have all those animals. I've just read a BBV article about a girl growing up with animals when her father started a zoo Some good pictures there too. http://goo.gl/Q9vYqK

  4. Lovely pictures of Auntie Joy and her pets. That magpie must have been fed very well to be so tame.

  6. Adorable. I agree with Wendy, the lamb is sweet. These pets are better for a little girl than a monkey! Thanks fo rsharing these pictures.

  9. A girl who loves animals that much must have become a vet surely. Lovely pictures.

  10. No. She was married to a farmer and is still very much interested in activities on the farm that her son now manages. For many years she also sold eggs from the numerous freerange chickens she had.
