Feast your eyes on the beauty that is the postcard.

While some are wary that the GIF will replace the ever-pretty postcard, there are some of us that are always impressed by how comforting and joyful receiving a tangible account of peoples' travels can be.

While the postcards mostly encompass European landmarks in the 19th century, there are some from across America in the 20th century.
