1940s Trousers - Sepia Saturday

I couldn't find pinstripe trousers to match this week's prompt but thanks to Australia and my old pal creative commons I did find something else.



Three men, almost four, all in trousers and with two pairs of braces on view.

Soldiers and sailors line up for minor clothing repairs - Brisbane 1940.

My post is short this week as I am at my daughter's in Michigan with three dogs waiting to play ball. 

However make sure you see what other Sepians have set out at Sepia-Saturday-192

THREE dogs, waiting to play ball? Goodness, Bob; brace yourself!

Those chaps look very comfortable allowing that lady to access what needs to be mended.... Well that's how it looks I must say
Hope your having a good time with the dogs!

Welcome back to the states from an Iowan. I remember my dad's army uniform but they didn't put stripes on them. Wool is so very scratchy. It is an unusual photo that you found.

It might be short Bob, but it is a perfect match for the theme shot. Have a great time in Michigan, tell us all about it when you get back.

Liz Needle said...

Great shot of three diggers. thanks Bob.

Postcardy said...

It looks kind of awkward to repair clothes that way.

Mike Brubaker said...

An excellent match for the theme, Bob. Have a great trip.

She probably volunteered her time through Red Cross or YWCA or somesuch group and has the look of a mother determined that her son shouldn't step out of the house with a button loose.

Sharon said...

The other three look like they are waiting in anticipation.

I always thought servicemen had to be handy with the needle themselves. Fancy having to line up to have a button sewn back on. Enjoy your holiday; I look forward to the wildlife pics.

What a great photo! How cool that you are back in Michigan again, enjoy your visit and playing ball too!

I'm sure they all wore braces under their jacket. Striped braces!

Loose suspenders? Not a good thing - you could lose an eye if one popped.
