I really like the fact that it wasn't just women who sent them - this is the back of one of the above pictured cards, that was sent by my Grandfather on February 6, 1919, when he was in the service. Also note how there are no street addresses - just the name and town! It reads: "We are fine and dandy. Hope all of you are the same. Will write later. Edw J. Larkin"
The images are still bright and beautiful after all of these years, even if there are a few bent corners.
Here is the back of another Valentine postcard that was sent to my Uncle Patty, from an old friend....(I'm trying to imagine guys sending Valentine postcards to their buddies today?!)
It reads: "Well, how are you, Pat? Why don't you write? We are all well and hope you the same. how do you like prairie life. Is there any hills. Well this is all for now Goodby from your old friend, Ed. Potter".
