Halloween Parties Of Yesteryear
From the Kansas State School for the Deaf, the Class of '53 in costume. I have no idea what the sack costumes are... "Sack race contestants" is a costume?
Don't you just hate it when other kids have the same costume? (Kansas State School for the Deaf, Halloween, 1959)
Well, at least you weren't the kid in the black face jack-o-lantern costume.
At the school's 1956 party, someone took their costume very seriously and spent much of the party scrubbing floors. Yes, I do believe that is a dude.
In 1958, one kid went dressed as Big Ben -- but looks more like a 1950's cartoon alarm clock.
The Johnson County Museum shows us Zorro; a Space Ranger; a girl with an oval white mask over her eyes, white cardigan sweater buttoned partway down over satin dress (lame!); and Droopy Dog.
Before we leave these Halloween parties of yesteryear, let's not forget to thank the Halloween Party Committee, the bakers and hostesses, the decorators and chaperons, for all their hard work!
