Love Me and The World Is Mine

My uncle picked up this card for me at an antique store out by him. The front of the card says “Love me and the world is mine.” A boy in worn clothes is on one knee in front of a girl making an unattractive face. Her clothes are also patchy. I think it is interesting that the girl in this card is not a glamour girl. This is a Bamforth card that was mailed in 1912.

Card Cow also has a card by Bamforth that is in the same style, with another unattractive woman. The picture below is from their site, but has already been sold. She looks a little desperate.
