Lemons for Loveliness: A Valentine's Day Stroll through the Archives
Valentine's Day 2011 has passed, but the memories, politics, and selling of the holiday of love live on in our Southern California archives. Los Angeles-area libraries, museums, and private collections shed light on how Valentine's Day became intertwined with everything from civic pride to the citrus industry and early Hollywood films.
Take a brief stroll through historical collections in this slideshow (make sure to turn on the captions in the lower right-hand corner) and see how L.A. has celebrated, memorialized, and marketed Valentine's Day over the years.
