Thanksgiving Photos

In honor of the upcoming holiday, I thought it would be fun to look at some vintage "Thanksgiving" themed photos.  There is just something a little creepy about some of them, knowing what happens to that bird in the end. Here are some of my favorites and I've had a little fun with them.  Enjoy!

  1. Some of those turkeys look like they have seen better days, ha ha!

  2. Awww, I'm glad to that I'm not the only one who feels that way about the fate of turkeys (especially when shotguns, muskets or axes are included as props in the photos!). Awesome roundup of festive images, I really enjoyed this post, dear gal!
