Food's favorite US holiday - Thanksgiving - boasts a pretty consistent history when it comes to dishes and celebration. Though some Thanksgiving traditions differ from place to place, vintage Thanksgiving photos tend to feature exactly what you would expect: a carved turkey, smiling faces around a dinner table, and maybe even a few scary Macy's floats.
Though Millennials may be moving toward smaller turkeys and avocado tofurkeys, photos of Thanksgivings past highlight how the traditional melding of stuffing, cranberries, and mashed potatoes has remained an American pastime.
