Take the postcards in this blog. All were produced between 1900 and about 1920 and reflect the surge in postcard production seen during that time period. These pieces are definitely on the cute side and a few even ring a romantic tone. We think they’re fun and they fit into our personal merry view of Halloween but the Society needs some items that reflect the scary side of the holiday. So, while we try to figure out how to get our hands on a scary item or two that scream (not literally) ”Nebraska Halloween,” enjoy these images and, whether you’re a porch- light-on or porch-light-off kind of person, have a Happy Halloween.
