Vintage Halloween postcard:
"Watch your step!"

It wouldn't be another year of Mild Fear without some vintage Halloween postcards. This one is an undated, never mailed Whitney Made card out of Worcester, Massachusetts. Whitney was much more well-known for making Valentine's Day cards starting in the late 19th century. But the company did expand into Halloween cards, and this one is a interesting combination of cute and creepy, with the Pumpkinhead Lurkers at the window.

The card becomes even creepier if you view it while listening to John Carpenter's iconic Halloween theme, so why not just find a empty room and do that right now, to get your festive day off to the right start.

There will be more vintage postcards throughout the day, perhaps when you least expect it. In the meantime, though, here's a list of some vintage Halloween cards from Papergreats past...
