1945 Postcard

1945 Postcard


Postcard collecting is the world's third largest collectable hobby. It is surpassed only by coin and stamp collecting. In the U.S., it is the fourth largest hobby, as baseball collecting is higher. It is also the most popular form of souvenir for travelers.


Due to government postal regulations, postcards were a long time in developing. Before postcards, there were envelopes printed with pictures on them. The first postal type card in the U.S. was a privately printed card copyrighted in 1861. Cards showing the Eiffel Tower regular appeared in 1889, which would soon start the postcard craze. By the time Route 66 was formed postcards had found a solid place in America.


Enjoy the ride on your virtual postcard tour of the Mother Road!
