Not Many Treats

Maybe those cups were to hold whatever tiny treats they might have gotten, but most don't have cups. Maybe for party punch? Not many treats in sight.

Joan Crawford Comeback

Well, at least lil' Joan sports enough makeup to match the role.

The little girl in front

is absolutely precious. The expression on her face and those little hands make me hope she got a nice treat for Halloween.

Fortune Teller

That costume would never fly today.

Piercing Mildred

The girl in second row looks -- scarily -- like Joan Crawford.

Good to the last drop!

So the kids back in the late '30s got a cup of coffee for Halloween. How novel! I bet they also slipped them a couple of smokes to go with their cup o' Joe.
