Hallowe’en in 1875

Are you sure this a Halloween photo? Witches? Nah, it looks more like a tintype of women dressed in very standard 19th century clothes.

The duster and dustpan, along with the broom make me suspect that these women might have been maids but posed in their fine clothes rather than work clothes.
