Years ago, at an estate sale held across from the school I attended as a child, I bought a homemade book of old Valentine cards for about $5. The cards inside were glued on used typing paper with a glue I remember from my childhood. It came in little buckets. The lid had a stiff spreader attached inside. It wasn't very good glue, as I recall. I remember as a little girl, using it in the old cook shack at the church I attended then. I can even still remember its distinctive aroma and, er, taste.
This Valentine is from sometime in the early 1930's. In order for the card to stand, it was made to bend into fourths. I love this particular card! Especially the little dog, along with the girl's "Mary Jane" shoes and flapper hair bob.
