Happy Halloween, Part I

It's amazing how many closet postcard collectors there are out there.

These postcards, from 1910 (left) and 1909 (right) are from my friend Deborah's collection. Her collection seems to be a real precursor of Hallmark cards, as many of them are holiday specific.

It's astounding to see that the Halloween symbols of 100 years ago, are pretty much the same as the symbols of today.
