Thankful Notes

With less than three weeks until Turkey Day, I’ve been aware of a pleasant, positive (non-retail) vibe from people. A preview of upcoming holiday spirit. Yippee. To contribute, here are antique Thanksgiving postcards from 1910-17.

Thanksgiving 1 Thanksgiving 3Detail from the back of the above embossed card is an example of marketing circa 1910.

“. . . come to us for your ‘dressing’.”

Thanksgiving 2

Tom Turkey had better get a move on.

Thanksgiving 4

Side note: Postage doubles between 1910 and 1917

Thanksgiving 5This pumpkin and pilgrim combination is most likely to be a screensaver later this month.

Happy November!
