This black and white photograph of Christmas shoppers from the early 20th century made me think of the modern Black Friday shopping frenzy. But since Black Friday has already been a blog topic, I thought I would use this as an opportunity to re-feature posts from Inside Adams and the other Library blogs, posted in celebration of Thanksgiving. It seems that there may be a pattern here at Inside Adams with a number of food related posts:
Please pass the slow twitch fiber…
Macy’s and the parade
A Sweet Potato History
Candied yams or Candied Sweet Potatoes?
Planes, Trains but not Automobiles
Pie•ology: A Full Filling Story
A 1904 Vegetarian Thanksgiving Dinner
Other Library of Congress blogs have used Thanksgiving as a theme in their own way. In the Muse and In Custodia Legis had the same title for their 2010 posts but each was quite different. In the Muse featured an 1878 piece of sheet music while In Custodia Legis looked at the legislative history of the holiday.
I also wanted to feature a few Thanksgiving related things that I found when I was looking around the Library web site. There are classroom materials which include a Thanksgiving timeline and a Primary Source Set with various guides on different aspects of the holiday.
Hope you had a happy Thanksgiving.
