Every November when I was in elementary school the teacher and her aide would put up a fall display on the cork-board, featuring not only Thanksgiving imagery but things like autumn leaves, corn shocks, and squirrels. I managed to track down some pictures of these and present them here as things that evoke some of my strongest memories of Thanksgiving. These were the days when the holiday still had a slight air of reverence and formality about it; if you didn't actually dress up for it, you still wore better clothes than usual. This was before "turkey day" turned into a sort of bilious belch between Halloween and Christmas. Most of these cut-outs were made by a company called Dennison.
