This whimsical Thanksgiving postcard from the early 1900's shows a great big Tom turkey and a hen turkey and a young girl trying to get away from the Tom who has her skirt in his beak. The detail of the card is embellished in gold as is the greeting, "Thanksgiving Greetings." The card is in very good condition with sharp corners and no bends, creases or tears.
The reverse of the card has a stamp, but there is no postmark. There is an address and message written in pencil. Since there is no postmark, it is not possible to determine where the writer lives . The addressee is from the same town because the address only has a street and number and the word City, indicating that it was for local delivery within the same town.
The message is humorous and is written anonymously as a little joke between writer and recipient.
MESSAGE: Nellie Give the turkey a swift kick if he don't let your dress alone. A friend
The card is written to Miss Nellie Farrell 721 McCarty St. in an unknown city and state.
Cards are sent in stiffened envelopes to prevent bending or damage.
