1909 Tuck Halloween Postcards

While a LOT of this blog is going to be devoted to vintage and antique Halloween items and imagery, Thursdays are especially designated to showcase some of the awesome spooky goodness from a bygone era.  In today's Throwback Thursday we'll take a look at some rather...interesting...vintage post cards.

I'm almost positive that ALL of these postcard images come from the Raphael Tuck and Sons' Halloween series 160, dating back to 1909.  These seriously crack me up, especially the first one.  Look at the devil in the background pitchforking that strange fruit guy.  Apparently they made amends because by the 'end' of the series, they've all sat down to a homecooked meal, lol.
