HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! sort of???

Woman's Heart Map

Brought to you by D. W. Kellogg circa 1833–1842. It’s hilariously awful. The Land of Display, the Land of Selfishness, the Land of Sentiment, The Land of Love of Dress, the Land of Coquetry….on and on. No doubt a man who probably had his heart broken right before he drew it.

Daniel Wright Kellogg, known as D. W. Kellogg, was the principal partner in the lithography firm D. W. Kellogg & Company,

which was in business from about 1830-1840 in Hartford, Connecticut.

The full caption on the ‘Map’ reads: “The Open Country of Woman’s Heart, Exhibiting its internal communications, and the facilities and dangers to Travellers therein.”

My Land of the Love of Dress was taken over and conquered years ago by the Mongol Horde of the Land of Denim and Fleece, so this doesn’t apply to me.

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY AND MAY I JUST SAY…WE’VE COME A LONG WAY BABY!!!

  1. Hi Miss Mary! We certainly have come a long way baby and isn’t that great!

  2. Mary, can I say that is the most interesting (and hilarious) birthday card I have ever received? LOL 🙂

  3. Hi Mary and ladies, Happy Valentine’s Day! I feel sad for the guy if he was jilted. Hopefully he found someone later and was able to move on.

  4. Thank you for posting this. I saw it on Facebook, but the picture was too small to read. Mr. Kellogg certainly didn’t think much of women. If he really felt that way about women, he may never have found happiness with one.

    Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day.

  5. Thanks for the post. I too saw it on facebook and couldn’t read it. It’s a hoot. The man was very anti women. Maybe he found God’s love and could then learn to love a good woman. It’s really very sad.
