Interrupted Courtship

The novel concludes with Kenneth returning to Ingleside for Rilla, who has grown up during his absence. During the First World War, ephemera including postcards and valentines were produced en masse by commercial printers. Produced in England by Holmfirth Bamforth & Co. Ltd., publishers known for producing “saucy” seaside postcards for tourists, these postcards depict images of swooning young couples with verses.
