These young Trick or Treaters look as if they've found a
surprise that goes bump in the night!
This is another reproduction postcard from the Halloween Postcard Book
published by Darling and Company in Seattle.
There is some information on the back of this card.
E. C. Banks designed the card and it was published around 1911.
Banks was one of several Halloween postcard artists active between 1905 - 1915.
Halloween was a very popular holiday during the beginning of the 20th century, probably even more so than today. During that period Halloween was celebrated more by adults than children, as they reveled in the mysteries and magic of the fall season. Most often these cards were used as invitations to highly anticipated parties. These parties had many wonderful games and activities such as bobbing for apples, fortune telling, and dancing, that are often beautifully depicted on the postcards.
A big thank you to the lovely Beth for hosting Postcard Friendship Friday.
Wishing YOU well and a fun filled weekend.
