Thanksgiving Postcards

by Marian Matyn

In the Clarke, we have a section of the Display Items Collection that are holiday related cards and postcards. The turkeys are clearly the main focus of Thanksgiving postcard art. Here is a sample of historic holiday postcards celebrating Thanksgiving mostly circa 1910. Enjoy. Happy Thanksgiving.
