Second installment of “antique clip art”. These are the images that were just too *odd* to include last time. They *are* interesting, however. The image quality isn’t as good, but feel free to use these as clip art, provided there is no commercial/ financial gain. A link-back would be appreciated.
There were intricate folds involved in opening this Valentine; this is the inside of the card. Kids today don’t talk about things being “in a nut shell”. Did they in the 1920s?
Not so weird, but the wording is a bit awkward for 2013. Cute dog though.
I’m strong for you? Must be a 1930s thing….
The boy’s hand swings downward, revealing a creepy little baby head inside the heart. Because nothing says “love” like decapitated babies. Look at that kid’s evil expression!
This drummer boy is creepy, too. Something clown-like about him. Sorry I could not clean up this image … evidently the card held a lollipop, candy, or some other item. There is reddish-pink paper residue all over the drum.
What is this: a valentine or target practice? The coloring design make me think “1920s Meets Yellow Submarine“.
This one would be lost in translation for today’s school kids. Today, cool is good. Back then … not so much.
This charming little boy came from Germany.
Unfortunately his arms pivot around a little brad under his collar and it makes him behave a bit like a windmill. Still, he’s very fragile and I’m glad to have him.
IMy son saw me scan this one and he said, “what does THAT mean?” As I explained “Streamliner” his eyes glazed over.
Right side? Perhaps I am being suspicious. “Wrong side of the fence” sounds sinister.
