Vintage Erotic Postcards from the Early 20th Century
Before you could send nudie pics through your smart watch there were other admittedly way more PG-13 ways to let someone know you were "thinking" about them. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, there were erotic postcards that, due to their origin, came to be known informally as "French Postcards" in the US. However, they were illegal to send via mail so you could only find them in certain "discreet" stores and street traders.
