An anonymous valentine sent to East 121st Street

February 13, 2013

I wonder who mailed this sweet yet message-less card to Miss Elsie Mangels, who apparently resided at 447 East 121st Street in February 1910?


Her residence looks like it no longer exists; a housing development and some empty lots occupy that address today.


The card comes from the New York Public Library’s digital collection—a treasure of old ephemera, including vintage Valentine cards.
