Shivers - Shudders - Thrills

Wonderful 1930s Mel-Roy Spook Show Window cards.
I love the text on the first card - "If while lights are lowered, and in pitch darkness a cold, clammy hand touches you, don’t get excited or alarmed; it may be a friendly spirit. When you are face to face with the supernatural don’t get scared. "
