20 Vintage Valentine's Day Cards

Nothing says ‘I love you’ more than a child in an aeroplane in a WW2 leather jacket making a bad pun . . . 
______________________________

. . . unless it’s a piece of heavy heart artillery with another bad pun. I'm gunner let this one through to the keeper.
______________________________

She's mine! All mine! And there's a label to prove it!
______________________________

Not sure what to make of this one. The figure on the left appears to be an angel of indeterminate gender, offering a heart to a provocatively dressed female, with flowers and some other strange objects on the table. Weird.
______________________________

Cupid has been hard at work and is now relaxing with feet soaking in a hot tub and a cup of soup(?). But is that a bottle of Scotch or of oil on the chair?
______________________________

Another child card. Why do vintage Valentine's Day cards so often feature children when it's the love of adults that is the focus? Plus another bad pun.
______________________________

I love you “waffley” much???? It doesn’t even make sense. Plus the little girl looks like a dog.
______________________________

At least this one doesn’t have a cutesy child but the wordplay remains. Are we having pun yet? (Sorry, couldn’t resist it.)
______________________________

WTF?
______________________________

Is there some law of the universe that says Valentine’s Day cards must be weird? The poem from the parrot to the little girl doesn’t even rhyme.
______________________________

Want to go to Paris with the cat and I as space mates? Just get your own gold fish bowl.
______________________________

Just totally creepy, nothing more needs to be said. Would you give this to the object of your affection?
______________________________

And this was considered okay back then?
______________________________

Or this?
______________________________

Another incredibly racist card.
______________________________

The concept of being fried together is almost as off as the puns. Eggsactly!!
______________________________

Is this the first lesbian Valentine’s Day card? Or first menage a trois card?
______________________________

Four frightened children sitting on a tree branch . . . a real symbol of love.
______________________________

If this doesn't get you a legover, nothing will.
