The heyday of the picture postcard was the period between 1900 and the First World War. During this time, picture postcards were the latest novelty. For the price of a penny, plus a halfpenny stamp, they allowed a quick and effective means of communication throughout the country. They often depicted local views including villages, streets, churches and other public buildings or, in the case of this card, the local tram system.
