Pumpkins have always been in style, but the other decorations that have defined Halloween throughout the years may surprise you. Apparently, spooking people never gets old. Here, a ghostly caped figure "scares" two people in their kitchen sometime during the 19th century.

I don't get an annual Halloween fix, so collecting photos is a way to resurrect old memories. I remember in elementary school we used to be given construction paper in yellow, orange, red and brown and instructed to cut out leaf shapes to tape up on the classroom windows — this because the trees in San Diego don't change color in autumn. Still, I have wonderful memories of Halloween there. Before I knew it, I was scanning old snapshots of my travels throughout Asia as well as bits of ephemera that I have been collecting for years.
