Chronicle file 1953

Ill holler out the window when its time to come home. That might be an oversimplification, and I know some old-timers will be defend this era of costume-making. But while Ill agree that store-bought costumes were a negative development, these older costumes are missing a sense of irony and humor and individualization that I like in modern Halloween costumes. A few more thoughts below the scary bear-faced serial killer Photo: Chronicle staff 1948 * To be clear, I mean no offense to those who grew up in the 1950s.
