WHETHER it’s a masked ball or puppy love, Valentine’s Day has long been a popular occasion in Edinburgh.

In 1962 Corstorphine Round Table held a St Valentine’s night masked ball in the Adam Rooms. Toddlers Andrew Crossland and Catriona Morse posed for a cute St Valentine’s Day photo at the Royal Mile nursery school in 1988. Kristeen Frampton looked a little unsure about accepting a card from Jamie Moncur at the Elim Pentecostal Church nursery in 1983.
