Countdown to Halloween - Oct. 22nd: Vintage Tally Cards #2

I really like the look of the vintage Tally cards. Here are some more festive examples of these.

I especially like the middle photo set and the lanterns pictured on the cat tally.

Love the Deco Silhouettes here...

What exactly were the tally cards used for? I don't think bridge is an official Halloween party activity!

Oh but back in the day it was! Back in the early 1900s on through the 40s, Halloween was for adults mostly--the parties were adult centered and typically hosts might throw a bridge party as well or play bridge at a party. Also, anyone having bridge night around Halloween might pick up some festive holiday tallies to use.

Interesting, I didn't know that. I thought maybe they were used for something else I didn't know about.
