The Picture Side of the Postcard

This postcard was published by Misch & Stock's in their "Nature-Miniatures" series 220.

The title of the card can just be read at the bottom of the picture:
              "Scotland    Arthur's Seat and Edinburgh Castle"

There is also a name (likely to be the artist's name?) in the lower-right corner of the picture.  It appears to be "Bowers".

The Address Side of the Postcard

This card was posted in 1905, following a change in  legislation, three years earlier, to allow a message to be written beside the address on a postcard.  Prior to that, the message had to be written on the picture side of the card.

Note the Post Office regulation quoted at the top of the left-hand column.  It refers to the 'back' of the card.

-   From the Post Office's point of view, the back of a postcard is the side with the picture on it.

-  From a postcard collector's point of view the back of  a postcard is the side where the address is written.
