About this object

This postcard provides a personal and candid insight into the lives of teenagers (at least one of whom is a girl) in the early 20th Century. The message on the postcard is written in mirror handwriting. Was this done to convey a secret message not visible to the postman?! Or was the sender just 'showing off' because he/she had the ability to write in mirror writing?The message elludes to the fact that the sender and recipient are involved in collecting and exchanging postcards.
