My love, my valentines












As a child, every year at this time my grandma would pull out her mothers childood valentines.
I loved them and now as an adult I collect them.......here are a few.



This is the largest one that I have. It is 9 1/2 inches by 6 1/2 inches and I think it is wonderful.


on the back it reads


To
Coy E Jones

From
Dean, Lillian and Fred Cowan
1929






this one reads
To Zelda Jones
1925





The one on the right here, the girl with the fan, the back read:

To Mr Jones
From Thelma B

(Mr Jones made a note at very bottom that reads)
Thelma Berry died from the small pox vaccanation.











I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into the past.
