It’s World Turtle Day. So it’s time to revisit this 1947 Life article about the harvesting of turtles for food. Sweet dreams!

Later in the article, despite the horrors of this picture, there are recipes for turtle soup.

….In case you weren’t horrified enough, check out the first part of this 1937 Chevrolet produced video, about two men going to get their turtle soup in the ocean and catching a sea turtle so big, it can only be brought to their house on top of a Chevy. Plus the end of this series of short series is the legendary cat boxing film that makes the turtle stuff seem pretty tame. Ah, 1937, what a time to be alive.

And yes, I am spending my evening looking up historical turtle soup items. What of it?
