The Golden Age of Postcards, spanning from spanning from the 1890s until World War I, witnessed an extraordinary surge in postcard collecting. This era saw the production, sale, and mailing of millions of postcards, and people acquired them simply for the sheer joy of ownership. These cherished cards found their place in carefully preserved albums or were exchanged among friends and family with the anticipation of receiving equally delightful ones in return. Essentially, postcards served as an affordable source of entertainment in nearly every American household. Visitors often marveled at the opulent postcard albums gracing parlors, living rooms, and sun porches. Beyond mere communication, picture postcards offered a vivid snapshot of American life, particularly during the initial decades of the 20th century. They were designed for every conceivable occasion, with a special emphasis on holidays!
