History of Postcards: Something to Appreciate and Be Amazed By!

Postcards introduced in Austria during the year 1870 were just plain in nature. These were illustrative in nature and for the purpose of advertising, originally sold with pre-printed stamps, however their popularity and use were very limited then.

It was in the year 1894 when postcards portraying certain pictures became known, but those were not easily accepted. These postcards were mostly images of city and seaside wonders, while themes and subjects were not common earlier on.
