This week, in honor of Valentine’s Day, we share a photograph that captures a couple’s tender moment in Prospect Park, around 1975. We hope you have a day filled with love and maybe a little too much chocolate.

This photograph comes from the Lucille Fornasieri Gold photographs collection comprised of 93 color and black and white photographs by street photographer, Lucille Fornasieri Gold, taken from 1968 to 2008. The photographs are primarily posed and unposed portraits of people throughout Brooklyn. To see more photographs from this collection, check out this gallery.
