DescriptionThanksgiving Postcard
Historical ArticleThe Thanksgiving post card mailed to Kansas City from Winona, Minn., in November, 1910, pictures a Pilgrim maid with a hot deep-dish pie, fresh from the oven.

A winter scene from the window forms the background of the picture with a road to a neighbor's cottage, ground covered with snow and an inquisitive turkey gobbler.

Inside, in the warmth of the kitchen, steam rising from the turkey on the platter spells out a reminder of hardy ancestors of an earlier Thanksgiving day with these words, Visions of ye past.
