Vinegar valentines

Subject Source: Local sources
Scope Note: Otherwise known as mock, mocking or comic valentines, vinegar valentines are rude, crude and often insulting illustrated verses which were printed from early in the 19th century until well into the 20th. By their very nature, it is unlikely that many have survived as recipients would not be well pleased to receive one and most would have been discarded.
