Happy Halloween from 1949 & The 1950's

Thought I'd share some vintage Halloween snapshots. The first two are from 1949. That's my brother-in-law in the skeleton costume, and the picture on the right is a kindergarten group:
These next two are from 1955,(left), and 1953 (right). That's my husband and his older brother. Some of the masks were still here in the house, and I use them when I decorate!
And, then the brothers again on the left, in 1954 (he really liked being an Indian, I guess, since that's what he was two years in a row!), and some friends are in the photo on the right from 1950.
Hope you enjoyed seeing these old costumes from back then!
Here's wishing you a Happy and Spooky Halloween!
