Thanksgiving with J.C. Leyendecker

My recent series on the work of J.C. Leyendecker produced a lot of interest, so I've decided
 to use some of his iconic Thanksgiving magazine covers for today's set.  Mr. L. had a virtual
 lock on the holiday covers of The Saturday Evening post for decades, and most of today's images 
are from that publication, although that did eventually change as you will see.  We start with 
1907 and a young Pilgrim about to shoot a strutting tom turkey.
