Looking Back — Wandering Turkey

The caption for this Thanksgiving 1959 photo in The Daily World read: “After a rather unusual ‘vacation trip’ around the countryside, Cosmopolis Lion Don Estes’ 25-pound turkey finally came home to roost Monday night. But Estes decided not to keep the wandering bird. He is shown donating it to Marian Gillespie for the Salvation Army’s annual Thanksgiving dinner.” If you have any information on this photo or others from this feature, visit www.jonesphotocollection.com and submit it via the websites feedback form.
