When I saw that Very Merry Vintage Style was going to have a Valentine Card Party, I knew what card I needed to post.
This card belonged to my Great Grandfather James, whom received this when he was young, he was born in 1853.....so I am thinking it is from the 1860's.
The inside greeting
Luckily my Grandmother had written this note and put it inside the card. I found the card in my Grandfather's WWI army trunk when we were cleaning out 1515 in the 1970's. I display it proudly every Valentine Day.
Of course James found his true love and married her on Christmas Day 1883
