The Old Story In All Lands

Renowned artist Winslow Homer drew 134 illustrations for Harper's Weekly from 1857 through 1880.  This is his version of Valentine's Day around the world.  (The illustration appeared in an issue dated February 22, but because the newspaper was postdated by ten days, it would have been available to the public two days before Valentine's Day.)
