  2. Hey Gerry, I'd love to post some if you have the time. I like how upbeat, if that's the word, this one is. It's a postcard for a city with a bright future.

  3. Curious about the postage note - "without message"

    Did they actually charge more postage if you wrote a message on the back?

    Postcards developed from two directions: as a popular communication means (before affordable long distance telephony), and as a business advertising means. A business advertising postcard ("without message") got a favorable rate (1/2 cent off in that era, I think) because they usually were mailed in bulk.
