Pictures of Generation X
I have been collecting pictures of Generation X since 2008, and have compiled numerous photos essays of Gen Xers in youth and childhood.

I cherish high-quality images of my eras of childhood and youth. For me, there will never be enough, for nothing tells the story of our days and times better than pictures.

Check out this fun collection of vintage Halloween pictures from the 1960s through the 1980s.

I especially love the street scenes of vintage trick-or-treaters.
