Welcome to Halloween in the 1920s! At the turn of the century, Halloween was largely a Celtic celebration but it wasn't long before the Jazz Age made its mark and ghoulish parties were all the rage. Revellers embraced the weird and the wonderful in all their gruesome glory. Don't believe us? We've got the photos to prove it.
Let us take you back to a decade which took spooky soirées by storm.
During the 1920s, the spooky season evolved from pesky trickery and vandalism, which had been the hallmark of the late 1800's, and churches and towns took hold. Costumed party-goers would vie for cash prizes, dance and frolic a plenty. Themes varied from 'animals' (chicken guy we're lookin' at you) or 'famous people', all with an art deco flare of course.
