St. Louis Globe-Democrat Newspaper Valentines Day Issue 1905

It is February 14, 2015, Valentines Day, and today I have for you a copy of the St. Louis Globe Democrat: Magazine Section from February 1905.   This special Valentines Day edition is 110 years of age, and is falling apart.  It was made using wood pulp and is highly acidic.  It is a lot worse than the more durable linen-based, cotton-based and rag fiber-based paper that was used up until the 1800s.

By the way, I did not mention that typeset error in "Governmental Problem in Both Hemispheres" ... the m in Problem is upside down (a photograph is below).  Watch those p's, q's, b's, d's and, in this case, m's!

Here are some photographs.  You can see the Valentines Day scene with Cupid, the sealed envelope and some ladies looking at their cards [one of which could be considered a Vinegar Valentine (I discussed those in 2011: http://michaeltheresearcher.blogspot.com/2011/02/vinegar-valentines-different-kind-of.html)] along with other news of the day.
