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 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

Coy E Jones

Dean, Lillian and Fred Cowan

this one reads
To Zelda Jones

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.
