Past Matlock & Matlock Bath photographers

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 this.

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.

Early postcards usually stated the postal rate rate in the stamp box. Until 1918 this was ½d for inland postage and 1d for "Foreign". Seemingly, you could send a card to Australia for the same price as another card could be sent to France!
