Treasure Chest Thursday - Pelican Photograph

Photograph of a pelican "killed" by Edgar F. Morris, GGGgrandfather of my husband Mark. If you look closely you can see the measurements of the different body parts of the pelican, including wingspan & beak, handwritten on the photograph.
The original photo was in an album of photo's we received when Mark's grandmother died in 2006.
Photo taken in Kentucky pre1913.
