Historical NoteReturn to Top

A postcard or post card is a rectangular piece of thick paper or thin cardboard intended for writing and mailing without an envelope and at a lower rate than a letter. The term Postcard refers to cards which were privately produced and were not sold with postage prepaid. Postcards are visual representations of people and places specific to a particular time, providing a record of changes in geography, graphic and artwork styles, social interests, and social concerns.

Deltiology, or postcard collecting, has been a popular hobby since the late nineteenth century. Germany's Heinrich von Stephan invented the concept of the postal card in 1865, and by 1870 postcards were being privately produced in the United States. The issuance of commemorative postcards at Chicago's World Columbian Exhibition (1893) followed by an act of Congress that allowed cards created by private publishers to be mailed at the same rate as government cards (1898) caused an increase in the production and collection of postcards in the United States.

The deltiology community generally divides the production of postcards in the United States into a few distinct eras. Postcards produced in the Pioneer Era (pre-1898) typically contained advertisements and appeared in urban centers in the East. Private Mailing Card Era (1898-Dec. 24, 1901) postcards had undivided backs and a Private Mailing Card logo. During the Undivided Back Postcard Era (Dec. 24, 1901-March 1, 1907), postcards had an undivided back and a Post Card logo. The Divided Back Era (March 1, 1907-1915), also known as the Golden Age of postcards, featured postcards with space on the verso for both an address and a message. Previously, only the address of the recipient was allowed on the verso. This period marks the apex of the popularity of mailing postcards. World War I, influenza epidemics, and the advent of the telephone caused the decline of the postcard after 1915. During the White Border Era (1915-1930), postcards were often produced with white borders around the screened image. The Linen Card Era (1930-1945) reflects a shift in production towards printing on linen card stock, which gave postcards a textured look and feel. Finally, during the Photochrome Era (1945-present), glossy color postcards became favored.

Until the mid-1970s, most cards produced in the United States were the "standard" size, approximately 3-1/2 x 5 inches. The "continental" size, approximately 4 x 6 inches, was a size that was common in Europe earlier than in the United States, but most of the cards sold in the U.S. since the mid-1970s are this size. Super-sized postcards approximately 5 x 7 inches were published more recently.

The printing on color lithograph postcards varies in quality. Most view cards are based on black-and-white photographs with color added. The printing on these cards often has good detail and deep colors. Greeting cards also are colorful and usually embossed, although sometimes the graphics on these cards can be of poor quality.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The Montana postcard collection consists of approximately 7,750 commercially produced postcards primarily associated with Montana subjects. Postcards in the collection were produced between 1893 and 2005, with most of the postcards dating between 1905 and 1950. The collection includes four series: the Artwork Series, the Greetings Series, the Subject Series, and the Oversized Postcards Series. The collection consists of photomechanical postcards and does not contain photographic or real photo postcards.

The Artwork Series contains reproductions of artwork, including paintings, sketches, etchings, sculpture, and woodcarving. Topically, the artwork focuses on Montana and the West. Over half of the series reproduces the work of Charles Marion Russell.

The Greetings Series comprises postcards sent in honor of a life event, such as a holiday or birthday, to establish general contact with an acquaintance or loved one, or to express a sentiment, like congratulations or humor.

The largest series, the Subject Series, contains postcards of geographic locations in Montana and subjects related to Montana and the West, often sold as souvenirs to tourists visiting locations in the state. The series primarily contains images of Montana cities and towns, state and national parks, bodies of water, mountains, and other geographic locations. The series also contains reproductions of L. A. (Laton Alton) Huffman photographs on Montana subjects.

Photographer L. A. Huffman settled in Montana Territory around 1879 to work as the Post Photographer at Fort Keogh. Huffman ran a photographic studio in Miles City from the early 1880s to 1890. In 1905 he began selling prints made from his negatives of frontier life in Montana. Huffman produced some of his images on postcard mounts, notably in two major sets. The 1907 Huffman set consists of twenty-seven black and white postcards, with some color variants. The 1926 Huffman set contains fifteen black and white postcards printed with a white border. The L. A. Huffman postcards in the Subject Series include cards from the 1907 and 1926 sets and later color reproductions of Huffman images.

The Oversized Postcards Series consists of postcards measuring greater than 4 x 6 inches.
