Postcards with cut-out windows to be held up to the light

 

1.

Undivided Backs

By far the most elaborate WH postcards that I have seen are the early ones; those produced up to 1903, where only the address could be written on the  back of the card.

Divided Backs

Far simpler were the postcards produced from 1903 onwards with 'divided backs' which allowed both the address and the message to be written on the back of the card.
