On New Year’s Day 1895, Canada began to permit “Private Post Cards” to be mailed at the same rate as government post cards. On December 9, 1897, postal regulations were further relaxed to permit more diverse content on the side of the postcard bearing the stamp and address. Here are some examples of Canadian postcards from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
