All of these postcards were collected from local antique fairs. Most of the ones I have so far come from firmly in the Edwardian period. To be totally honest I'm not sure what the history of postcards is or when people started sending them.
I find most of these interesting because they represent relatively casual communication in an era when people were just starting to get away from the very formalized social systems that permiated the 1800's. They also reassure me that I'm not the only adult who has serious problems with spelling. :P
