Postcards first appeared in Victorian times, and were quite different to today's cards.
A small picture on the reverse and space to write a short message, with the front for addresses etc only. These can be quite rare and of value for the postcard and the postal history value as well.
Now of course they are as you would buy in any tourist outlet. A picture one side and the reverse for the address and a message. The initial cost to post these cards was ½d which was cheaper than the penny post. Today with Royal Mails newly implemented price increase it will cost 53p for the UK rate. More for overseas.
A brief description for postcards taken from Wikipedia follows.
A postcard or post card is a rectangular piece of thick paper or thin cardboard intended for writing and mailing without an envelope.
In some places, it is possible to send them for a lower fee than for a letter. Stamp collectors distinguish between postcards
(which require a stamp) and postal cards (which have the postage pre-printed
on them). While a postcard is usually printed by a private company, individual
or organization, a postal card is issued by the relevant postal authority. The United
States Postal Service defines a postcard as: rectangular, at least 3+1⁄2 inches (88.9 mm) high × 5 inches (127 mm) long ×
0.007 inches (0.178 mm) thick and no more than 4+1⁄4 inches (108 mm) high × 6 inches (152.4 mm) long × 0.016 inches (0.406 mm) thick. However, some postcards have deviated from this (for example, shaped (postcards).
The study and collecting of postcards is termed deltiology.
