Color Photo from Halloween 1958

Snapped by a teacher of her class on the playground. These kids were just about my parents’ age at the time. Most of the costumes look like the old Collegeville plastic types, but I really like the Superman in the back, who, having none of this photo business, is plotting on scaling the fence and beginning his candy quest early.

    Back when kids were actually allowed to wear their costumes to school and have Halloween parties.
