We hope everyone is having a terrific Tuesday- or as we like to call it, #TurkeyTuesday! In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we’re sharing this incredibly fitting photo taken in Cuero, Texas, on November 11th, 1940! 🍁 The ninth annual Cuero Turkey Trot was hugely successful statewide, and the celebration made several significant headlines, as well! There were approximately 10,000 turkey fowls exhibited, as the parade was famously regarded as a “preview” of the nation’s finest birds on display just before the holidays would begin! Some 50,000 visitors flocked to see the fowls strut down the street in all their glory. 🦃 The birds followed the tunes of 14 marching bands combined, led by a two-mile-long parade, including pep squads, drill teams, horses, floats, and several other groups! We can only imagine what a sight that was to behold in-person! 🥁🎺🎉🏇🎈
Photographer: Doc McGregor Happy Thanksgiving to all!!

It’s hard to imagine needing a full-length winter coat in Corpus Christi, TX, especially when it’s 80° outside on November 20th. So let us take you back to this day 84 years ago on this fabulous #FlashbackFriday! 👒🧣👜💼🧥🍂
Just like today, November 20th, 1936, was also on a Friday- and a cold one at that! The stylish couple featured in our first photo was photographed walking from Sun Pharmacy, which was on the corner of Peoples and Mesquite Street at the time. During the 1930s, women’s hat designs, such as the fedora, were inspired by menswear, and so many men’s hatters began producing women’s hats to compliment the men’s lines. As seen in this picture, women’s fedoras during the late 1930s grew more complex, giving them an origami feel. The fedora hat is worn raised high over the head, then pulled down in the front and tilted to the side to achieve an angle that appears both chic and carefree. The second picture features the inside of Sun Pharmacy as it serves a bustling lunch crowd in February of 1937! Both photos in today’s post were taken by photographer, Doc McGregor. 📸
