Hougham’s Halloween Party? Village of McLean, ca. 1890

Old Halloween Party, 1890s.

Not much is known about this photo other than the handwritten caption indicating it was taken at Albert and Betty (or Bettie) Hougham’s home in McLean, about 1890, and might show a Halloween party. It’s believed Elon and Eva Crane, Leota and Sue Hougham, Carrie Wheelock, and Lou Yancy are shown here, but just who’s who we cannot say.
