Valentines Day Postcard, CDV and tintype

I think the tintype on the left is very old probably 1860s or 1870's. It is a paper frame around a tin photograph. It seems in so many photographs the people are leaning against a post or desk like the lady on the right.
This lovely lady is being visited by a child angel who has given her a rose from the basket. Looks like they are exchanging heart charms. Its a little early but Happy Valentines Day.

I love the image on this postcard! I don't think it's too early to share ideas for Valentines day. This is such a sweet idea with the angel and the heart charms. Thank you!

I think they probably leaned on something becuase they had to wait so long for the photo to take. It's also why you don't see alot of people smiling in old pics.... cause they couldn't hold the smile ;-D
