Aviation Postcards: Seattle

 Back in the day, everyone used to either collect or use postcards. Letters were the main way for people to communicate with others. Nowadays, it’s almost like a joke, due to the fact that you can instantly send a message to someone across the other side of the world. Years ago, about 20 million postcards were sold annually. That number is now down by about 75%, and unfortunately this decline is just accelerating.
