Tea and turkey … sort of

You never know if you don't ask, right? That was my theory when I recently typed "tea turkey" as keywords into the Library of Congress search engine. One of the photos that popped up, of four men sipping tea, caught my eye.

Here's what the LOC site says about the photo: "Title: Reception by the Director of Programmes, Palestine Broadcasting Service. Tea being served, right to left: Turkish Consul Gen., Egyptian Vice Consul, Mr. Bailey, Ruhi[?] Bey."

The photo was contributed by a photographer for the Matson Photo Service. There is also a note that says, "Caption continues from catalog: (Garden party at McNair's, Katamon, April 20, 1940)."

It's not quite the sort of "turkey" photo I was looking for this week, but it's certainly intriguing!


  1. That's funny! I guess someone thought those guys were "turkeys"!

  2. Indeed!

    Happy Turkey Day, sweet friend. We have much to be Thankful for!

    Love, Michele

  3. I love this fantastic find. Thanks for sharing it!
