Wild West postcards and Round Robins (RRs)
My favorite history subject is the settling of the wild west. I love receiving postcards of anything related to this or Native Americans. It's rare for me to receive postcards about this so when I discovered a RR (round robin) that would allow me to receive these types of postcards on one of the Postcrossing forums, I just had to join. (Click here to see and read more about this specific RR. Some of the postcards I collect are ones I find on my trips around the US. This RR allows me to send my blank unwritten postcard to a different user who then writes it, stamps it and sends it back to me. I love it because I get the postcards I really like written, stamped and sent back to me. Here are the three postcards I received from the RR. All of these postcards feature Virginia City, Nevada in the late 1800s.
