Wait A Minute Mister Postman Postcard Party 47

Tuesday's Postcard Fun Fact:

White Border postcards surfaced around World War I, not because it looked nice to frame the picture but because it saved on ink. Also, because of the war, printing shifted from Germany to the United States.   This time period, 1915 - 1944, was about saving on precious resources and not so much about the quality of the postcard.
