The theme for this week is Thanksgiving. Those who know me know that I have a collection of postcards. Most of them are from places that my family or I have visited. Buying postcards before the advent of digital cameras was one way to insure that you had a image of the sights that you had seen. However, I also have holiday postcards and those are most special to me because they were sent to my father, when he was a little post.
I have several Thanksgiving cards;
This one is my favorite. It was sent to my father in 1909 by his cousin, Addie Cochrane.
I also have some other Thanksgiving cards. I like this one because it combines the traditional colonial woman and boy with a turkey.
Turkeys seem to typify Thanksgiving. Here is another card with a turkey featured on it.
I am grateful that my family kept these cards and that I am able to share them with you.
