Pictorial Postcards

Pictorial Postcards

Postcards first emerged in the 1890's as a cheap way of keeping in touch, with postage rates being reduced on such cards. The period from the 1890's through the 1920's saw the production of some very elaborate designs and they are highly sought after for their beauty. Many show landmarks or places that are unrecognizable today, and are of great interest to historians.
