Travel Back Thursday: Halloween In The 1950s

Our friends at AOL Travel published an article today, covering the Best Halloween Neighborhoods in America. These communities and neighborhoods have some long-standing traditions that they honor in order to keep things festive — and perhaps a bit spooky. This 1952 throwback shows a young family, preparing to go out that evening in their Central City, Colorado neighborhood.

What did your community do for Halloween when you were young?

With Halloween right around the corner, and fall afternoons providing some great lighting, Gadling Flickr Pool member Matt Shalvatis captured this image of the House Of Chimeras, in Kiev. Between the ornate architecture and dark clouds, the photo provides a slightly haunting effect.

Though some national parks are re-opening thanks to state funding, Virginia’s Shenandoah National Park remains closed. So, although you can’t take a cruise on Skyline Drive in real life (at the moment), enjoy this shot of how the road presumably looks right now.

It’s sunny today, but those of us at Gadling spent the weekend in various stages of “soaked,” thanks to gray skies and copious amounts of rain. As we look ahead to a brighter week, we’ll leave you with one impressive, final “gray sky” photo, from Gadling Flickr Pool member James Adamson.

Landmarks of any city can look entirely different when the sun sets and the neon lights of nightlife pierce through the darkness. Today, Gadling Flickr Pool member Joe Newman showcases London’s Big Ben at night, as traffic streams past.
