It's been a while since I posted this seasonally appropriate image of Lloyd with his Thanksgiving turkey.. I hope I can be forgiven a repeat. It's not like we have a lot of turkey themed images to choose from!
You'll note the first time this was posted I said the boy's name was "Paul" while the notes clearly say "Lloyd". The first couple of dozen images I posted on Historic Hood River in 2011 were from an earlier scanning effort at the museum. I used the notes attached to the scans. It looks like those notes were in error.
In this more recent scan you can see the partial album page bearing the image, what seems to be a contemporaneous note identifying Lloyd and dating it to 1947, as well as the processor note the print was made in December 1956. It's very common for processing dates on prints to be a year or two later than the image, as people would pull out a camera for a special event, shoot a few images, then put aside the camera to finish the roll of film later. Nine years is a little extreme, assuming the 1947 date is correct.
2008.280.006 is the museum accession number, indicating it came into our collection in 2008 (or at least was processed and entered into our database then). I don't have access to the database right now to see if there are any other notes, but I'll update the notes if there are any more details about who Lloyd may be.
Have a happy Thanksgiving!

Despite a very large, very dead turkey, this has always been one of my favorites because of the very large smile on a little boys face.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone and a very large thank you to Arthur.

I've got at least 3 rolls of 35mm I've either shot, or am shooting, that haven't been developed yet. And they go back a good 4 years and counting... it still happens.

Perhaps Lloyd Benjamin?

Anyone recognize the background? I assume it says "White Salmon" so is that a park, or .....

I checked the museum accession database. The notes are confusing, but I believe they associate a Lloyd Nichols with this collection. There are some other photos from the 1950s with an older man identified as Lloyd Nichols. The collection also includes shotgun and some hunting gear.
