A Photobooth Valentine

Happy St Valentine’s day!

These sweet photographic love-notes are undated but I’d say they were taken sometime in the 1940s, possibly during WW2. They have the look and sentiment of war-time keepsakes, probably sent from the USA to this lady’s lover overseas.

They are so cute and unusual, I cannot understand why any descendants of this woman didn’t want to treasure them forever.

    i remember the song well. It was sung by Diana Shore and others. It was very popular in the mid 40s.

    • Hi ZIggy. I agree and Yes she does. These photos were ones I thought would be fought over fiercely on ebay but no! Seems I was the only one in the world who wanted to save her.
