A selection of QSL cards, which are used by amateur radio buffs to confirm a two-way transmission between stations. In use since 1916, they form an endlessly fascinating spectrum of vernacular design.

Archive sites abound online, also, a typically absorbing Wikipedia article on the history of the cards here.
