    Later, 1918, and far away at the Naval Station in American Samoa during it’s annual Flag Day event there was a Baby Show. The Program for Flag Day that year put the event this way, “Baby Show. First Prize: For best PHYSICAL specimen of full blood Samoan Baby, under two years of age, $5.00. Second Prize: For any baby under three years of age, wearing the prettiest costume faa-Samoa, $3.00. Did someone who remembered the P.T. Barnum shows stage it? Or were there other Baby Shows that happened between Barnum’s last in 1863 and 1918?

    I was wondering if you could help me identify the year of publication of a beautiful Whitney card entitled Ninety Years Ago (When Grandfather Danced with Grandmother). I found it in my grandmother’s album. Thank you.

  • Colleen Parry

    I have a card printed by Whitney, I wondered how old it is? Are they worth anything?

  • Bob Valentine

    I have a sign that reads VALENTINES. Geo. Whitney Worcesrer,Mass. It is pressed cardboard and is 5′ x 1′. How old could it be? Thanks.

  • Ramsey

    Great article, thank you. Recently purchased an early Whitney Valentine Card and now I have the history behind it.

  • Leslie

    I have some Whitney valentines and they are so beautifully printed that I can hardly bear to look at the cheap and tawdry things that are sold now. I wish that someone would bring the Whitney company and factory back to ilfe!
