If our earlier post on vinegar Valentine’s has left a sour taste in your mouth, this postcard is a sweeter reminder of the day. It was sent from Brighton on 13 December 1909 to a lady in Shrewsbury. Perhaps it lead to a Valentine’s card two months later?
‘Dear Old Eda,
Am sending you photo of the boy I told you about what do you think of him. Hope you are quite well. Am expecting a letter. Fond love to the children + best and fondest to yourself. Yours Lou’
The picture side of the postcard bears a group portrait of the Theatre Royal football team. The man standing on the right of the back row is marked by an ‘x’. Is he the boy mentioned by Lou?
