Happy Thanksgiving from #GalvestonHistory! In observance of today's holiday, the Galveston Historic Seaport, 1892 Bishop's Palace, Great Storm Theater, and Architectural Salvage Warehouse are closed today. All sites will be open on Friday.
This card, published by Raphael Tuck & Sons around 1905, was part of the firm's “Thanksgiving Day Post Cards, Series No. 123.” It was donated by Dr. Sally Robinson, owner of the Everett House in Galveston. The Everett family left two big boxes of these cards that were sent to them over the years. The collection includes local, regional, and international cards.
The history of postcards is a fascinating one. Head over to youtu.be/wgvfHNF4CeA and check out our Galveston in the Rage of Postcards lecture by Richard Eisenhour. ... See MoreSee Less
