Title

1896 Moore Postal Card & Response

Description

Technically, this postal card is two postal cards. One is the sent postal card, the other is an attached response card. They are identical in layout: the portrait of a man in the oval is worth one cent and the rest is free space aside from the label of postal card. The notable difference is that, on the response card, the address is already filled out. The sender was either very considerate or very demanding.
