This vintage Halloween postcard from a Whitney 1911 design shows a little girl in nightgown holding a candle to a mirror to see a ghost behind! The spooky ghost is a trick from some little Halloween sprites that are holding a sheet on a broomstick and a pumpkin. These little Halloween sprites are interesting. They appear in many Halloween postcards of the time and look somewhat like children made up to look like pumpkin heads and somewhat like little elfin creatures playing tricks.
