Vintage Valentines

In honor of Valentine’s day I thought I’d share with you some vintage valentines from the Newton Owen Postcard Collection. These postcards were collected by the Bayne, Foell, and Owen families. The collection includes many travel postcards, but also contains special holiday postcards.

Here are a few of my favorites for Valentine’s Day.
