We don’t always wish to be remembered for our costumes… Would you be proud to discover your ancestor in this vintage Halloween photo, circa 1920s? Wouldn’t you prefer to remain ignorant to grandpa in blackface? I’d prefer he was the gas-mask wearing guy. But never ever the horn-playing clown. I’m fine, however, with cross-dressing grandma. I have plenty of those in my family tree. (I’m pretty sure I posted pics of that somewhere… But I couldn’t find them, even with Google’s help. Bummer.)
