For some reason I think similar links have appeared here before, but my searches came up dry. Still, this link shows that history may not in fact, be worth repeating...

There was another site I saw awhile back that was nothing but witches. One old photo in particular had several older women sitting around, like a tea party, but all dressed as witches. It was a hoot.

This isn't the site, but the same photo.

Amazing how creepy a basic mask with just slightly distorted/exaggerated features can be. These are perfect example of how effective simple things can be.

Not exactly Halloween related, but an important reminder that there was just as much awesome in the past as there was scary...

BTW - the whiskey vending machine is long overdue for a comeback.

It is amazing that we survived.
The best pic is the last pic. Classic.
