Fabric Postcards From 1919

I've created and mailed fabric postcards, but I had no idea how far back they were made. 

A friend sent five of these old cards to me - one is dated 1919. The fabric looks like embroidered hankies that are enclosed in card stock. The backs are marked for postcards. 
They are addressed and written on without being stamped or canceled. Perhaps they were mailed inside an envelope or it could be postage wasn't charged for mail going to an APO. 
Have any of you seen early fabric postcards like these?

Winter in Palm Springs

While friends and family were sending pictures of the snow they received in Kentucky, John and I enjoyed an afternoon in nearby Palm Slrings.

Old Town Orange Outing

After a great six week post op appointment with my surgeon, John and I spent a while in nearby Old Town Orange.

We shopped in Country Roads Antique mall where I found an interesting quilt scrap - never mind that I already have more than I could possibly use in my lifetime. 

We ate dinner in a nice little Cuban restaurant named Felix - yummy.

After dinner we walked and shopped a little more, and I bought a New York fashion print of a 1950s coat - I'll have to decide if I'm going to keep it in California or take it to Kentucky.
