Halloween Windows

We are 11 days away from Halloween and in the midst of fun I guess we can do a little learning-I’ve been thinking about Undertakers-Undertaker is actually a euphemism which refers to the person in charge of (i.e., someone who undertakes the responsibility for) the body and burial service. 

Now days if you Google “undertaker” you get pages and pages of a Wrestler.

Trick or treat.

“Office of Butterworth & Sons, Undertakers,” from brochure Seattle and the Orient (1900). The Butterworth firm (1892–1997) was, at that time, located at 1426–1428 Third Avenue. It soon relocated to a new building at 1921 First Avenue.
