Now That’s A Turkey!

A huge thank you goes out to Gail Anthony Youngdale for a fabulous photo of long ago Comanche.

Gail Anthony Youngdale Boyd and the big turkey

“The two young boys with the turkey is one of my favorites of all times. I have kept the photo in my mouse pad for years. I found this among Dad’s things. I remember Dad talking about working in a turkey or chicken processing plant that was almost in downtown Comanche. He said it was close to where Bonser Printing was at one time, which was probably East of the old Majestic Theatre.

“I believed Dad is on the left, but I have no idea who the fellow is on the right. I do remember Dad saying when the wind blew the entire town smelled terrible! Someone may be able to correctly identify both guys. Of course, neither of the boys was old enough to be working in a processing plant.” -Gail
