Happy Thanksgiving: Postcards from the Clements Ephemera Collections

These Thanksgiving-themed postcards provide illustrations of early 20th century celebrations of this American holiday. The Clements Library ephemera collection contains many examples of printed materials like these, including programs, tickets, brochures, handbills, trade cards, political fliers, postcards, and billheads. Culinary, travel, and theater-related materials are a particular strength. To learn more about the collection, see the Graphics Division page on our website.
