Wait A Minute Mister Postman; Postcard Party 17

I love postcard history.  Did you know that prior to 1909  you had to write your message across the pretty pictures on the front?  The back side of the postcards was restricted to only the recipients address.  Often the postcard maker would leave room on the front for the message but some did not.  These postcards are called "Undivided Back Postcards" or UBPC because they are missing the bar that divides the message side and the address side.

I love going to the antique store and looking at the old photos and postcards! Actually I just love antiques in general (fitting, since I'm marrying a history major!)

I've never bought any of those postcards or photos though. I don't know what I'd do with them. Do you display yours in your home? I think that could be really neat. Especially down a long hallway.

(P.S. Found you through Mice In the Kitchen's Blog Train.)

Hi Stephanie, I am so glad you stopped by. I have displayed them on the walls in the past but now we live in a very contemporary home I keep my personal collection in a beautiful vintage looking photo album. I store them just like other photos using acid-free pages. I have also created wire wall-hanging brackets (similar to the ones used to hang decorative plates.

So far coolest way I have seen was to display them in antique glass mail boxes. I have never seen these first hand but an acquaintance had sent me some pictures. It was absolutely beautiful.

Have very blessed day :)
