Sunday Postcard Art: Retro Halloween

I can't think of anything more retro than a photo of my kindergarten (or first grade?) class in the 1950's, all dressed up for Halloween. It was at Mordecai Gist Elementary School in Baltimore. I'm the bunny.

No,Linda, my mom always put us in separate classes--she was "ahead of her time" in that way. She thought it would be better for us.
