Photo Flashback, Trick or Treat Edition
Picked out your costume yet? I delved into The Post's photo archives to see what treasures were to be found. Maybe some of these ideas will inspire you.
This photo has no caption information other than PHOTO BY ELLIS and the note that it was shot on Oct. 29, 1961. It was obviously a time when boys wanted to be cowboys and girls wanted to be...what is that? A clown? I love the way the boys are "kissing" her. It's the last thing they want to be doing but the photographer has told them to.
The next two photos are from 1983 and were shot in Georgetown by Lucian Perkins.
The caption info reads: Blinky from the game Pac-Man crosses M st. in Georgetown under the watchful eye of a policeman.
I love how policemen always have "watchful eyes." Continuing the theme:
The caption info read: Karen Lozano (left) and Michael Williams spend Sat. night in Georgetown as Pacman and Ms. Pacman.
Those costumes obviously took some time to make. And I love Michael's socks!
Finally, here's a photo from 1990, snapped by Wayne Partlow for Reuters.
The caption: HALLOWEEN:FALLS CHURCH, VA, 31OCT90 -- Joan Mund (l), of Fairfax, VA, grips the neck of Ruben Lazano, 21, who sports a likeness of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, October 31 in a Falls Church store. The Hussein mask is the latest and most popular in Halloween masks this year.
Who's the villain this year? Swine flu? Osama bin Laden? Balloon Boy's Dad? Dan Snyder? Enjoy your Halloween.
