Happy Thanksgiving, 1908

The Thanksgiving Day feast illustrated in this 1908 card begins with chicken consomme  and trout, and it ends with pumpkin pie and ice cream. The main course was turkey with cranberry sauce, spinach, succotash, and mashed potatoes. Beverages were tea, coffee, milk, and "good old cider." The proposed toast was "Eat drink and don't feel lost. This only comes yearly, so don't mind the cost."
