Plain postcards for short messages, were used in the U.K.
from 1870 onwards.
Communicating by picture postcard was introduced by Royal
Mail in 1894, although the images of some cards may pre-date
At first all picture postcards were printed with a side bar,
which usually included the card's title. Senders were able
to write a very brief message on the bar, reserving the back
of the card for the address, postage stamp and postmark.
This only changed in 1902, when the Post Office allowed a
message to be written alongside the address on the back of
a card. From then on publishers divided the back into two
halves, with a line down the centre and the picture could
fill (or almost fill) the front of the card.
