Happy Thanksgiving! The photo above shows the cast of the 5th grade Thanksgiving play at Santa Ana's Franklin Elementary School in 1931. Genevieve Straw is the Pilgrim lass in black. The entire class (sans 1620s garb) is shown below.
This has been a particularly difficult year for which to be thankful. But I am sincerely thankful for my family, my amazing friends, my job, and all the great folks at the Orange County Historical Society. I'm also, of course, thankful for my readers (like Doug McIntosh, who submitted today's photos) and fellow local historians for continuing to inspire and encourage me.
But enough of this cloying sentiment. Go eat too much.
