This is a Valentine postcard from 1910 that I purchased many years ago. It was in a box of miscellaneous paper ephemera
It's an odd postcard in my mind, as the sender expresses no words of love or romance, yet has chosen a Valentine card image for Maggie (the recipient). Perhaps it was the only card he had on hand, or found in the shop, but it's always struck me as an amusing card for James to send to Maggie.
I've not done any research on Maggie or James so have no idea who they are! I'm sure Maggie at least could be found in the 1910 census records.
