Seaside postcard 2 - On The Rocks

1928 postcard
Another classic card: this beauty is from 1928, and who could resist?!? And quite a racy costume to complement the golden locks blowing in the sea breeze.

A question for the postal historians: on the reverse is the instruction "If not more than five words of conventional greeting are written here, only halfpenny stamp is required". Well that seems a little mean to me, just what was the rationale for charging more for extra pencil usage? You can't even fit in "weather fine, wish you were here" in to five words . . .
