Now we get to the REALLY disturbing ones. Keep in mind these were probably from the 20’s-40’s era. It’s sickening and mind-boggling to think CHILDREN sent these to other children!

Let's offend Native Americans-how cute-NOT!!

    Good god, those are shocking! Unbelievable how the world’s changed over the past few decades, mostly for the better when it comes to those terrible racial stereotypes. It makes you wonder who the heck bought them and if they actually led to romance, I’d love to know.
    Thanks for sharing, Tamera. They really are fantastic pieces of social history. Have a fab Valentine’s Day and may you be showered with gifts and love. xxx

  2. I can hardly believe that anyone would have sent these: they are astonishingly awful. How times change….

    Unbelievable. Which is what others will be saying about whatever’s going on now that we can’t really see.

  4. What’s wrong with me I love these!!!!!!! But I know they are really inappropriate for kids can you imagine if your kid came home with any of these. What’s with the one that says you have a face only a mother could love…DIVORCE!

    Thanks for sharing these they still make me laugh!
    XXOO

  5. HA! I want a Death Ray Eyes boyfriend!!! Love these so much, Tamera. Happy VD to YOU!

    I think the Jack Ass Of Love is really sweet. But the rest are just weird. Not that I dislike weird. The racist ones are terrible but they do make me laugh with their bizarre stereotypes. Can you find some weird Easter ones next?! xxx

    What a weird and wonderful collection – social and cultural history through the images on Valentine’s cards, there’s a book to be written there, I’m sure! xxx
