Thanksgiving on the Shelves of Western History and Genealogy

Blog Topics


I enjoyed the photo of the turn of the century Thanksgiving. Like the one you had last year, it helps me imagine what life was like inside the old houses in my Capitol Hill neighborhood. I also noticed that, like the picture last year, the turkey was quite small compared to those of today. I guess modern genetics and other developments have allowed us to grow Godzilla-size turkeys and chickens.

Glad you liked it, Jude. Thanks for commenting!
