SCHOOL VALENTINES 1945-1950


Valentines Day was special to grammar school students. They would find in their classroom a gaily decorated box into which they dropped their stack of valentines to be distributed to their classmates. Anticipation built until afternoon arrived and the valentines were given to the students named on the back.

Valentines generally available to local folks in those lean years immediately following World War II were usually very small, most measuring less than 4 inches in width and 5 inches in height. Many depicted activities with which we had no familiarity—talking on the telephone, skiing, flying in an airplane, deep sea diving, etc.

All of the following valentines were received by a student at Spring Place Grammar School in the late 1940s. It seems rewarding that they now can be shared to refresh memories of others who attended local grammar schools during that time.
