This Valentines Day postcard got me wondering if there were also other ones with a holiday greeting. And if so, why?
A quick online search revealed that postcards were often used as greeting cards back in the early 1900s. Without email (the horror) or widespread phones even, greeting cards and postcards were one of the most effective ways to get the word out about your favorite cause, which for many was for or against women's suffrage.
Here are a few of my favorite suffrage, anti-suffrage, and vintage feminist Valentine's Day cards:
