|The Spiraling Chains: Kowalski - Bellan Family Trees
My Great Aunt Yola gave this Valentine to my Grandma Dina back in the 1920s when they were schoolgirls. I love how she signs her full name - as if it would be from another Yola! I found it in some of my Grandma's things a few months ago. It obviously must have meant a lot to her to keep it all those years.
On a side note, this is one of the weirdest Valentines I've ever seen. "Nobody better BEAT my Time." Not so sure what that's supposed to mean, and the fact that he looks as if he is about to hit her with the club is a bit disconcerting. Can you imagine the response if a child handed out Valentines like this today?
