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.
My love, I send you by express / Pray treat my love, with tenderness (1912)
Valentine wishes : don't hesitate (1913)
Poppies sweet dreams define : wilt thou be my valentine? (c1910)
To my Valentine, With Sunshine always in your heart / May every joy combine, To brighten all your future days, My Own Dear Valentine
