President Harding's Thanksgiving Turkey

Photo Details

President Warren G Harding's Thanksgiving turkey being delivered by the U.S. Postal Service.

The caption says that "President Harding should worry about the high cost of turkey - another Thanksgiving gobbler arrived at the White House today." (The box is addressed to President Harding. It is the gift of H.W. Mason of Crystal Springs Mississippi.)

Since the President didn't start pardoning turkeys until after the 1950's, this must be for the White House Thanksgiving dinner?

Karla Autrey I'm not sure what you think Christians, the paranormal and mailing a live turkey have in common.
