How have the designs of Valentine's Day greeting cards changed? Do these cards represent social and cultural changes throughout American history? In honor of Valentine's Day, the Digital Public LIbrary offers this collection to help shine light on these questions and more. Here readers will find over 7,000 digitized images of Valentine's Day cards along with photographs, art, and a number of other items related to Valentine's Day. This collection includes items from a number of universities, libraries, and other institutions around the United States. Included in this collection are a number of Valentine's Day postcards from the early twentieth century; an intriguing photograph, courtesy of the Boston Public Library, of automobiles engulfed in snow after the 1940 Valentine's Day Blizzard; and an 1884 invitation to the "Grand Reception and Valentine's Day Party" in Raleigh, North Carolina. Visitors may also enjoy a number of photographs of school children celebrating Valentine's Day throughout history
