A Happy Halloween To 2007 from Halloween 1921

A real photo postcard of a group of people posing for the camera in their version of Halloween costumes. On the verso, written in period ink are the names of those depicted in the photo and the note that the photo was taken on Halloween night of 1921. The two people on the ends, standing, are young ladies dressed as men, and the person in the middle, standing, is a man dressed as a woman. This photo is from an old paper and photo lot of the Almonte family of Federal Hill, in Providence, Rhode Island. Their dry goods store has, for many years, been on Atwells Ave. on Federal Hill, a well known Italian neighborhood in Providence.

Wow, I wouldn't be able to tell the true gender of the woman dressed up in the suit. Excellent find.
