This is a great and hard to find large cabinet card photo of a children's Halloween costume party. The black and white photo itself measures 7 by 9.25 inches and the cabinet card it is on is almost 10 by 12 inches. Some of the children are sitting on a settee in the center, and some are seated on the floor or standing behind the settee, but the ages range from 2 babies being held in the background by two women and what looks like some older children. The costumes are great - most likely hand made as they each seem very unique - pirates, Indians, ballerinas, a nurse, cowboys, soldiers, Pilgrims - just a great mix of great kids costumes!
The photo has some wear and stains, and so does the card behind it that it is attached to. The edges of the card are also worn and the corners have wear, too, as you can see in the photos, and there is evidence of tape on the back of the card as it this was once attached to something. Overall, though, this is a neat find for the collector, one that you don't see very often in this size and with such great subject matter.
