I don't find as many Thanksgiving cards, tucked into desk drawers if unused or pasted into scrapbooks if they were gladly received. But I have found a few that I'd like to share.
|An early 1960s image of the turkey and the pumpkin.|
|This is a postcard from the early 1900s.|
|The image on this card from the late 1950s gives one pause, |
because it seems to contradict the written message. "Fun" for the turkey?
|Here's the turkey again, just posing as part of the Thanksgiving landscape.|
|This is a more generic holiday card, showing the transition from autumn to winter.|
|Putting cats into the middle of everything is nothing new. This late 1950s-early 1960s Norcross Thanksgiving card features a kitten so popular, he had a name: Topaz.|
|This is another Norcross card, featuring another kitten: I think this one is Snowball. (The third named Norcross kitten was a black one called Inky, but I haven't found |
any vintage Thanksgiving cards with Inky on them. Yet.)
