"Writing Space "

 

This post 1906 back is comparatively unusual by simply using the words "Writing Space" to describe the message area, and if one ignores minor differences - such as colour, whether there is a full stop after the word "Post Card", and whether the dividing line is single or double - the backs can be divided into the following versions.
