Golden Age White Border Linen


This postcard was mailed in 1909.

The Golden Age of postcards lasted from the beginning of the twentieth century until about 1915. Before World War I, most of the better quality cards were printed in Europe. Postcards were very popular as collectibles, and many were saved. Printing quality was usually very good. View cards usually have good detail, deep colors, and no border.
