1940's Vintage Valentines

Couldn't resist posting a few good examples of 1940's graphics with these charming Valentine cards. I especially like the die-cut card that features a soda fountain. Great example of vintage design - and you have to love the malt shop appeal! I believe that the little boy playing a drum is a Boy Scout. Very cute!

Whitney Made Valentine Card

This is such a beautiful Valentine that I just wanted to share the photo. It's a Whitney Made, which is collectible. Most of the Whitney cards I've carried open, as this does. They often have this type of elaborate frame work at the edges as well. I would date this as 1920's. It's a charmer!
