Valentine’s Gallery

At this website you can explore the history of Valentine’s Day cards. It is a virtual gallery of Valentine’s Day cards through the ages. When you get to the site there is a brief history of the Valentine’s Day greeting card, and then samples of valentines dating back to 1879.

The small sample pictures are accompanied by a bit of text that describes the card, tells the date the card was produced, and reveals the message in the card.

There are 7 pages of Valentine’s Cards to look at — and because of the graphics it may take a minute to load each page. Your patience will be rewarded with a wonderful overview of Valentine’s greetings through the ages.
