and that was the day the library was like a museum

The library is showing a collection of Valentines made from the 1890s to the 1940s.
I loved the ones with handwriting on them.
Some of them were just plain baffling.

Some of the prettiest ones refused to be photographed.

I hearted PR in Steph's post before I hearted vintage valentines, but apparently I'm going to heart everything today. It seemed to fit so well in both places. Sue me.
