Those Who Came Before Us

Thanksgiving has come around again. I'm really going to miss last year's celebration of it- McDonalds with Elena and Cranberry sauce through a straw... We all know why we celebrate it, as a commemoration to a successful harvest when the Native Americans saved the lives of the settlers of Plymouth, Mass. by teaching them how to farm in the New World. Then we broke our treaties with them and slaughtered them all. But, as we have photographs to get to, I'll hold off on the rant against the US vs. the Native Americans. Sadly, I have no photographs of the Wompanoags, the tribe which so greatly helped the Pilgrims because of aforementioned treaty breaking and slaughter. Pretty much all of what I have are images of late 'Wild West' Native Americans. So here you go, a tribute (in antique photographs, of course) to the original inhabitants of this country who helped the European settlers in countless ways in all parts of this land.

Lullabye

As much as I love you all, (even if you won't (for the most part) reveal who you are) I'm really tired, so I have no witty or exciting sounding banter today. Just more old photographs of people with their musical instruments. Mayhap the memory of their images will lull me quickly to sleep.

Goodnight!

Starlets! The label on the photograph says Kid Millions Trio.
I'm assuming it has something to do with the show.
