“A Token of Regard” – Paradise, PA (1906)

Miss Caroline Powell lived in Paradise, an unincorporated community in the “Pennsylvania Dutch” country of eastern Lancaster County, PA.

On February 14, 1906, Miss Powell received a postcard greeting for St. Valentine’s Day.

The postcard bears a hand-colored drawing of a woman with a child; the child waves a branch of pink blossoms.

The legend, in blue, declares, “A Token of Regard”.

Because the postcard was mailed from Paradise, we may assume that the anonymous sender was a nearby friend or colleague of Caroline.

One hopes that Miss Powell was charmed by the elegant simplicity of the postcard and was glad to be remembered with a Valentine.
