    3. This interesting and informative snippet was posted by London Westminster & Middlesex FHS: "On this day in 1870 the postcard was officially introduced, along with a halfpenny stamp. An interesting fact which can help date family photographs which have postcard backs is that picture postcards were not allowed until 1894 and in 1899 court size (the size we have today) was introduced, ie 5.5 inches x 3.5 inches." Hope someone finds this helpful in trying to date old picture postcards. Lynne
