Our grandmother, Leoria, attended quite the Halloween party in October 1907. She was just 3, two months from her 4th birthday. Thirty children and many adults in a home with all those costumes must have been overwhelming for a little girl. Also, as I look at cards and images from the celebration of Halloween in at that time, it's pretty scary.
This postcard is innocent enough. The next one may be a good representation of the decorations that may have been found at 186 Main Street in Binghamton, New York that night.
The newspaper article below details the people, the decor, the activities and the entertainment little Leoria participated in that day in October 1907.
