Memory Mondays – Turkeys
October’s #MemoryMondays are once again featuring the Barton collection of photos. This month we’re sharing photos of turkeys, just in time for Thanksgiving!
|This undated photo shows a farmyard with turkeys and smaller fowl who appear to be eating.|
|The perfect October photo! This picture from 1927 shows a young boy with his pet turkey, a young Banty rooster, and a jack-o-lantern. If you look closely you’ll notice a bell on the turkey’s neck. The owners of the turkey put bells on it to scare off wolves.|
|This winter scene shows a boy with turkeys ready for plucking. No date.|
|Taken in September 1929, this photo shows a woman feeding turkeys. The family sold turkeys for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.|
