Halloween Greetings—What's Meant for Thee, Thee'll Have

Halloween Greetings—What's Meant for Thee, Thee'll Have
A Halloween postcard addressed on the other side to "Miss Bertha Duncan, Cresson, Penna.," and postmarked in Altoona, Pennsylvania, on October 24, 1912.

Handwritten message: "This card is a little soon for Halloween but I will send it anyhow. Aquilla."

Printed on the back: "Printed in Saxony 0624."

In a candlelit room at midnight on Halloween, a young woman gazes into a mirror through the steam from a cauldron so she can catch a glimpse of her future husband.

For other Halloween postcards with a mirror-gazing theme, see:
