Neighbor Tom found something mysterious and wonderful hidden in the rafters of his Bernal Heights:
Look what I found while renovating my house!
It’s an olde-stylee valentine card. From some brief googling, I think it is:
- Circa 1920s, maybe 1930s
- From a woman with a German name (Jizella)
- To a man with a German name (Helme ?)
- Made in America
I found it in the ‘side attic’ in our 1907 house on Mullen Ave, under some insulation.
The question is, was it lost there? Or squirreled away for safe keeping? Or left for future generations to find?
