Watch Out! Here comes the Boogieman!
Hi everyone. It’s good to pop in and make a post for Dana, but I would much rather see her able to continue without interruption. It is two months since my last assist. Lets hope you don’t have me here long before Dana takes the wheel again.
Posted by proxy from Dana’s “stuff to blog” queue while she is on medical hiatus. She reads and appreciates all comments…and apologizes for not being able to respond at the moment.
Gosh, did I get a swell batch to post on my return! These wonderful “Boogeyman” images from the 1920′s are actually stereoview cards.
From the auction listing, with edits:
1920s BOOGIE MAN child & goblins bedtime DROP CARD series of 15 stereoviews lot. This particular series…would be very unique as halloween costumes & monster movies were just coming to life (at this time). This is pretty bizarre & scary series.
On back of one of the views it is written J-13 “The Goblins will get you if you don’t watch out.” The views also have ink stamps on back from 1923 from a Dept of Public Safety approved for Sunday. Since they came out of an early coin op machine there are machine… wear marks etc. They are almost 7″ x 3 1/2″ in size
These did not sell for the asking $495.00. The source listing won’t be online for long, but you can see more here.
