Wow ~ Thanksgiving, besides being a gesture of appreciation for our country, is a celebration of food. Our Digital Collections, now thanks to the Rocky Mountain News photo collection, has numerous photos of delicious food, in color, and ready to eat. The opening photo shows a Thanksgiving dinner hosted by the Salvation Army on Thursday, Nov. 27, 2008, at the Colorado Convention Center.
The RMN's coverage of the Thanksgiving Food Network Challenge on March 23, 2006, provides some colorful stock photos of food that are a distinct departure from our traditional black and white historical photos.
It's not all bad for your waistline, either. Some of these goodies are downright healthy!
Save room for Bourbon Sweet Potato Pie!
"Wow Photo Wednesday" celebrates photographs in the Denver Public Library's Digital Collections that have "The Wow Factor" and that highlight the myriad delightful nuggets in our database.
