Postcard Friendship Friday

Such a cute illustration - I thought it might be the same artist that did the Dolly Dingle dolls but it is not.  Grace Payton was the lady who is responsible for those cuties.  There is a name, Mary Eleanor George, printed on the card but I can find nothing on her.  However, enjoy the valentine and the message on the back to the professor.  The sender did not sign a name and there are just initials for the addressee - so is this a lady sending her valentine message to her beau or the beau sending one to his lady?   And I take it the "tar" is another term for sailor.   A little mystery for this sweet season coming up.  Many thanks, Beth, for hosting PFF.  Stop by her blog at  and you will find lots of great old postcards.
Enjoy!  (Click to enlarge)


  1. i like that surprised look. I wonder if the sender was a jolly jack tar.

  2. I like the way her eyes look like they are popping out from the surprise.

    Happy Pff to you :)
    This is really a fun card.
    I also tried to find out about the artist name on my card today and came up with nothing .
    Maybe I was searching in the wrong direction.
    It really is such fun to see the talent that went into the older postcards.
    Have a wonderful rest of the weekend.
    Until next time
    Happy Trails
