The back of a post card can give several clues about the age of a card.
If the postmark on a postally used card is readable, that is the first clue to its age.
Real Photo Post Cards (1900 to present) Post cards that are actual photographic replications were first produced around 1900.With the advent of World War I, the production of post cards for American consumption switched from Germany to England and then to the United States.White Border Era (1915-1930) Most post cards produced in the United States were printed during this period.In this era, private citizens began to take black and white photographs and have them printed on paper with post card backs.If no message was permitted on the address side, the card probably predated March of 1907. The address was to be written on the right side; the left side was for writing messages.
