This photo is captioned "Paul with the Thanksgiving Turkey, 1947". Hope you've all got your turkeys too. Happy Thanksgiving from Historic Hood River! We'll be back next Monday with five very recent discoveries from the Museum's archives.
Oh, this one is something else. My guess is that it was actually taken in White Salmon, due to the sign.
Wonder if Paul realized that that was going to be on his table Thanksgiving Day.....
4 days without a new photo. How will be manage?
Happy Thanksgiving to all

No tears from Paul.
My husband said he hated it when they hung the turkeys upside down and stuck them with a knife so that they slowly bled to death.
It made picking them easier.
He said he would walk by and they would look at him and blink their eyes.
Evidently Paul didn't feel the same remorse.
Probably a Tom turkey that chased him all the time.
Yes, Charlott. I can't stand a weekend without a HHR photo.
Four days is a long time.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone and Arthur.

Arthur, I notice you don't have tag for White Salmon.
You have offered us a pretty good selection of photos from the WS area.
