The first postcards were created in Europe in Austria in the years 1860. In France, the postcards development was took place a decade later.
In January 1873, it was possible to buy a postcard in France (law of December 1872).
Before 1904, the front of the postcard is dedicated only for the address. After 1904, it is possible to write a few words.
One stamp is also a further indication for the postcard's dating.
The most interesting postcards are those from 1873 to the first world war.
