Happy Valentine's Day


Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!

Here are two cards I'd like to share.

The first was sent to my great-grandmother Janet McAdam in 1911.

Valentine to Janet McAdam - February 1911 - front

Valentine - 1911 - from Roy Stachwick perhaps

Two months later Janet McAdam married Willard Lowe Waning not the sender of the card!

The second car is a Valentine my grandmother sent to my grandfather while they were dating (pre-1936). 

Valentine - from Margaret to Jim - pre 1936 (front)

Valentine - from Margaret to Jim - per 1936 (inside).

They were married for 71 years!

They just don't make cards like this anymore. I love them! Very interesting that the first one was saved all these years,isn't it?!

Is someone in your family an archivist? These cards are so perfectly preserved!

Wow--the first one seems lovey-dovey, yet she married someone different shortly afterwards?! And they were married for 71 years! That is fantastic!
