Whitney Halloween Postcard

George C. Whitney Halloween “Ghost Series” postcard. Collection of Joe Geronimo.

Another new feature here at Adirondack Joe will be the “Postcard of the Week”. I have quite a large collection of vintage postcards. Some of them have been posted and some have not. I love the posted ones because I find the messages and the history fascinating. During the first half of the 20th century postcards were the “Social Media” of that era. Postcards were sent for almost any reason but the holiday ones were especially popular.

Halloween postcards were huge at the time, especially between 1900 and 1925. These cards are extremely coveted and extremely expensive. As Hallows Eve approaches here is the first “Postcard of the Week”.

Do you have a vintage postcard? If so and you would like to see it here on Adirondack Joe please get in touch with me.

Cheers!

Joe
