Wait A Minute Mister Postman Postcard Party 51

Tuesday's Postcard Fun Fact:

Postcards were first introduced around 1860 in Germany, Australia and the US.  The idea of writing a message on an unsealed card was met with strong resistance because anyone, including servants, could read the private notes but it was cheaper than using an envelope so it still took off.  I guess even then Money Talks :)
