a little blog devoted to collecting vintage greeting cards


1940s Modest Maidens and Victory Rolls

"I wanted to send him 
      a birthday card......
         but I can't find one that says
 'to a stinker!'"

a little comic from my ephemera collection. 
1946 Modest Maidens~ 
loving those VICTORY ROLLS!

1940s women would fashion 
their hair into rolls
as a show of patriotic support
for their beloved
 soldiers overseas. 
Victory Rolls are commonly 
thought to 
be named in honor of a
WWII plane maneuver 
of the same name.

you can get a closer look at this beautiful card,
 as well as, more
 WWII greeting cards HERE
