A Historic Valentine's

Shanks Family

Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and every year around this time, Emma St. Dennis pulls out a fascinating photo album filled with Valentine's Day cards from as far back as 100 years ago.

"I've collected these throughout time from my grandmother, my dad and his siblings. In the family photographs you can see there are the grandparents that sent out (these) Valentine's Day cards (left), and then the grandchildren that received them (right)."

"I just love looking at them, and I get them out every year. Valentine's cards from 100 years ago are just so cool!"

Emma will have her photo album of Valentine's past out for anyone who would like to stop by and take a look and hear some of the stories behind the cards. Some of them even have 3D pop-outs!
