1. These placecards were published by P.F. Volland & Co. of Chicago, which produced children’s books and novelty items between 1908 to 1933. (Photographs by Petrina Jackson).

    The University of Virginia special collections library found these early 20th Century Thanksgiving placecards tucked away in a big stack of family papers. Check out their blog post about them, and Happy Thanksgiving
