The postcards are grouped by the holidays and memorial dates they are devoted to (New Year, March 8, February 23, May 1, May 9, September 1, November 7) as well as events (Birthday, wedding).
Few people know that in mostly atheistic Soviet Union (during the last years of its existence) were postcards devoted to Christmas and Easter. These postcards are also present in our base. So are postcards with images of flowers, child's postcards, and many other.
Many holidays of the former USSR are no longer known anywhere else, therefore in other countries it is practically impossible to find postcards to congratulate somebody, say, with March, 8 or February, 23. Our application will help you send your compliments to those, who remember these holidays and will be glad to receive your congratulations.
Cards with messages had been sporadically created and posted by individuals since the creation of postal services. The earliest known picture postcard was a hand-painted design on card, posted in London to the writer Theodore Hook in 1840 bearing a penny black stamp.
Postcards quickly gained enormous popularity all over the world. It became a tradition to send each other postcards with congratulations on a holiday. Deltiology – collecting postcards -became one of the most widespread hobbies.
Postcards make good collectables, because they enable us to feel the «spirit of the epoch» - they tell us how people lived at that time, what they aspired to, what they liked. Look at Soviet postcards – and you will by all means feel it, too.
Quite naturally, greeting cards have always been the most popular kind of postcards. Along with them, a lot of other postcards were produced in the Soviet Union – with the photos of cities’ sights, art reproductions, portraits of famous people, etc.
So, Let us reminisce times of the Soviet era and have a glance at postcards from the USSR.
