Originating in the United Kingdom, Valentine’s Day occurs every year on February 14th. Tokens of love or affection include candy, flowers and sentimental cards. Mass-produced cards were created in the U.S. starting in 1847. Giving a Valentine to a friend or love one has long been a tradition, especially amongst schoolchildren. This Valentine was given to Bill Stine, from Sally K. in Littleton c.1950, and shows a steel riveter working on a giant heart.
