Before there were stolen cars there were stolen horses and buggies: Use of post cards to disseminate information.

As some of you know, I am working on a book on stolen cars.  Very early on, insurance companies distributed information on stolen cars using the U.S. postal system. Note that in the above example specifics on a stolen team of horses and buggy is being sent out to police using the mail. Another example of continuity in history!
