Sepia Saturday: Great Granddaddy feeding his turkeys

Photobucket

George Washington Burris, Sr., feeding the turkeys...I'm just going to guess that this may have been taken in the early to mid 1920s. If that's the case, then they had turkeys in town (Russellville), which would not be out of the question.

George Washington Burris, Sr. died in 1929.




This is a Sepia Saurday post.

Wood Shed?

Or turkey shed? Either way, that background construction has a fabulous texture - not so sure about the turkeys...

That's a cool photo. Those turkeys look pretty young and small.

Here you 'can't see the trees for the wood.' Fine turkeys and a well used shed.

Wow, those are some small turkeys. They must be young. I know when the flocks getting running and flying around here I feel like I'm in Jurassic Park!
