Vintage Postcards: Valentine's Day Vegetable Children


| 6/18/2013 4:22:00 PM


These twelve postcards are from the Garden Patch Series, illustrated by E. Curtis in 1907. They were typically used as Valentine's Day greetings. The novelty illustrations feature an exaggerated-size vegetable or fruit as the head of a boy or girl with a related pun displaying around the image. The postcards were published by Raphael Tuck & Sons, a London-based publishing business that was one of the most well-known during the 'postcard boom' of the late 1800s and early 1900s. The company headquarters, Raphael House, was destroyed during The Blitz of the Second World War. This information is collected from a variety of online resources, and the postcards are available to order through TuckDB Postcards.
