About

From 1905, picture postcards superseded carte de visites in popularity and circulation. Postcards were printed directly from negatives or via photoengraving and were frequently hand coloured. Mass-produced and easily distributed, postcards allowed photographers to develop a lucrative market for their professional output. With postcards, the dissemination of photography was integrated into broader communication systems as well as the tourist industry.
