Victorian Halloween Costumes

Happy Halloween, everyone! To celebrate, I have decided to share some vintage Halloween photographs. Some are very definitely from the Victorian era, others . . . less so. My stopping point was 1920. The first two were brought to my attention by fellow researchers, so I'm not sure where they originally found them. The others I got from random Googling.
