Dim light inside the Carmody House - part of the Uxbridge-Scott Museum - helps make the top photo look old. ;-)
Although the house in which this parlour is decorated was built in 1850, some of the furnishings are of the early twentieth century, suggesting it belongs to a family living about a century ago with treasures from previous generations.
And here's a closeup of the table setting. The centre of the tablecloth is embellished with pulled thread embroidery but the cloth is edged with crochet.

- East Gwillimbury is a rural town less than an hour north of Toronto, Canada's largest city. My family calls me CameraGirl because I take my camera with me wherever I go.
Love the tea set. And the detailing on the gable. Looks like a fun place to visit!
What a lovely old house, and it looks great in sepia. Nice photos! They could be postcards.
Love those English decoration..
They always look historic.
You have certainly taken us on a tour back in time!
I feel like I have stepped back in time. Well-done.
There is a beautiful olde worlde atmosphere in each sepia shot! Really delightful!
What a gorgeous sepia presentation. It really does make it more appealing.
What an interesting room. I'm guessing that ornate roundish piece is some sort of heating unit.
Love the square dishes.
These are great EG and I love how the lighting in the first one aged the photo! Loved the ornate stove .. it would make a great sepia piece on its own too I think.
I keep forgetting about sepia tone day...I sure enjoy the pictures I run across with it. These sure do fit it, don't they?
Yes, this certainly looks like we went back in time. Gorgeous!
You really gave us that authentic feeling of days gone by.
Lovely photos and beautiful lighting!!
My gosh. This photo brings back a host of memories. My dad had a stove like this one. Called a "hard coal burner" they burned hard coal which is small and costs a little more than regular coal. The big thing on top is where you could dump in a whole coal bucket of hard coal and then it would filter down onto the red hot glowing coals below and would often last all night or from supper time to breakfast. It was the nicest stove we ever owned and kept our entire house warm. My dad's stove did not have the water tank on the backside like this one does but other than that it is the same.
Oh my this may very well be my very favorite of all.
I love this. It looks like a scene right out of the Victorian era!!
You really did an excellent job on this one!!
I think the sepia tones really set the mood for the photo and history.
That tablecloth is gorgeous!!
I don't know how you proceed to get a so beautiful and light effect in your sepia pictures (and I don't even want to know it would break the magic). These pictures are perfect image of the past. We could say "Those days are past", but not really.
EG, this series of photos is just exquisite! They look like original sepia photos! The table cloth is gorgeous! What a wonderful Sepia Scenes post! :)
This is perfect for a Sepia!!
Time has stopped here!
