Wait A Minute Mister Postman Postcard Party 45

Tuesday's Postcard Fun Fact:

In 1870 France and Germany were at war and when soldiers were wounded the Red Cross gave them unstamped postcard to let there families know they were alright.  But after the war, the popularity of picture postcards dwindled because Germany was considered the inventor and the French did not want to follow the lead of anything Prussian.
