16 October 1957 “Halloween Magazine Ads & A Sunny Sunday”

It is a lovely sunny Sunday here in New England and we are going to be biking into town with friends today. We will have our meander along the canal and the boardwalk. sandwichboardwalk1 sandwichboardwalk2 We will putter about town, stopping at the Mill Pond, feeding swans or watching fish.sandwichmillpond sandwichmillpond2 It is a good day for it and we will end, no doubt, with some spiked apple cider by the outdoor fire pit on the terrace.  A good day all round, I hope.

So, to continue yesterday’s Halloween theme, I thought I would share some fun Halloween Candy adverts from Life magazines through the 1950s.
