Reprise: Thanksgiving Los Angeles Style
1934, turkey shoot at the Elysian Park Police Academy — that’s the first image. The second image was taken at the Biltmore Hotel in downtown L.A. — as chefs prepared Thanksgiving dinner.
I remember once when my family was living overseas scoring a turkey (which was hard to come by) and when we plopped it on the table to prepare – it was half covered with feathers. Turkey feathers are murder to remove. My mother handed me her eyebrow tweezers and I was at it for HOURS.
Happy Thanksgiving, near and far!
