This photograph appeared in The Pantagraph on Thanksgiving Day 1956. The original caption read: “Good morning! Today is Thanksgiving. My name is Craig Russell. I'm three, and I live at 1304 E. Grove St. I hope you have the biggest drumstick ever today. And be sure to give thanks. That's what Thanksgiving is for."
