VINTAGE PHOTO : Great Picture for Halloween of BOB KANE Dressed in Batman Costume!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! Here's a photo I recently saw on one of my favorite Batman Message Boards that shows BOB KANE ( co-creator of Batman, worked with Bill Finger but he NEVER gets credit, ha ha ) dressed as Batman. It's a vintage black & white photo but not sure of the exact date. Behind him, on the wall, are some of the POP ART paintings he did & they're dated 1968 & 1969 so that's a clue. Guessing early 1970's. But I still love it & wonder what the deal is. Did he dress-up in a Batman Costume for Halloween or was it for promotional purposes only? Either way it's a real treasure. Thanks Chuck for posting this great graphic!
