No. 9861: Valentine's Day Card ca. 1910
Postcard #9861

Scan of a Valentine's Day card found in a house on Ashmont Street during renovation along with other papers from the early years of the twentieth century.

 The 10-inch card was found in a house on Ashmont St., hidden, for over a century, behind a built-in set of drawers. It is an articulated card. The boy with flowers behind his back leans down to place a kiss on the girl whose eyes move slyly from and toward the boy as the fan moves up to hide their romantic encounter.
