Postcards: A Visual History

-A A +A
By Zack Fairfax

“The sheer numbers of postcards sent through the mail at the height of their popularity are staggering. In 1906, a periodical called The Postcard Dealer reported that the United States had an annual mailing of 770,500,000 postcards and that the total number passing through the New York Post Office in one particular week was 200,000. In a single December day that year (1909), the Saint Louis Post Office handled 750,000 postcards!” An excerpt from the newly published book by two LaRue County friends, Carl Howell and Robin Milby.
