All Creatures Great & Small - Smile for the Camara

Pauline (Gobur) Kolbush (born c.1865 Austria/Poland) with her turkey. Although most likely not a pet, I am sure she was still quite proud of her bird.
Photo taken in 1936 on the farm of George & Pauline Kolbush in Jamesburg, Middlesex, New Jersey.

My mother and uncles grew up on a farm in rural New Brunswick (CAN) in the 20s/30s/40s and they've often told me how their mother would warn them not to get attached to the poultry! She meant the hens because the turkeys were actually not that friendly!
This is the fourth "Smile for the Camera" entry that concerns farms - who would have guessed!
