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.
