Valentine’s Day cards from the early 20th century

February 14, 2014 — 

The University of Manitoba Archives and Special Collections is currently processing the Pugh Family collection, from which these images were taken. The archivists don’t have exact dates for these cards, which are preserved in a scrapbook,  but one archivist suspects they are from the early 20th century, probably 1920s at the latest.

    I was always a fan of cards in grade-school, you would make a shoe-box mailbox come back from lunch and have a bunch of cards to read!
