For this Sepia Saturday Suggestion lets look at some Halloween Snapshots that have accumulated over the years.
Oddly, although this is a popular subject for amateur photographers, there are very few Halloween themed snapshots in LOST GALLERY.
Let's start with one set of nine photographs, all Polaroid shots that apparently were from a Halloween party at a restaurant.
So today for Sepia Saturday, lets look at all the photographs in LOST GALLERY associated with Halloween!
A little research found that these party pictures were taken in a fast service restaurant called Taco Tico, an idea started by brothers Dan and Robin Foley. The first Taco Tico restaurant opened in 1962 in Wichita, Kansas. Sources vary but the idea apparently grew to several hundred locations, company units and franchises across Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas in just a few short years. The Foley brothers sold the entire company in 1988. It is an interesting sidelight that the first Pizza Hut restaurant had opened just four years earlier, in the same city, Wichita, Kansas.
Halloween at the Roller Rink!
There are lots of photographs of people in costume in LOST GALLERY, but only these few seemed Halloween related.
Here's a big Halloween scene. It's about 60 children in Halloween costumes, ready for the Trick or Treat circuit of their neighborhoods.
Now, materialize back at the Sepia Saturday home page, and see what other spooky Halloween contributions you can find.

THE KIDS It is always a mystery how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned. Here are a few. You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.
