This Imperial policeman was convinced that the king these players were manoeuvring against was in fact the tsar himself. Chess-themed conspiracies were one of many problems to beset the authorities following the arrival of postcards in Russia. But little could have prepared them for the onslaught of messages that followed. The postcard medium did far more than provide a cheap and convenient way for the revolutionary underground to communicate — it brought the popular voice within earshot of the Imperial regime.
It had been just a few decades since access to printed material had begun to extend beyond the elite, but already powerful new spaces were being created that the state was struggling to control. Such was the scale of the problem that the Interior Ministry contemplated banning postcards altogether. In the late 19th century the humble postcard became a modern tool of mass communication.

Momentous technological advances in paper production and printing shrunk the world, giving the wider population a voice and offering a raft of new opportunities to subversives and propagandists. For Russian revolutionary groups, the growth of the print industry not only expanded their reach, but also helped them to establish new ways of raising money. Activists, most of whom were based abroad, depended heavily on donations, but publishing proved one of their most reliable sources of income.

The industrial revolution that boosted the publishing industry was also greasing the wheels of political dissent. In January , following a disastrous war against Japan, striking workers in St Petersburg were shot down while on a march to the Winter Palace. The bloodshed set off a full-blown revolution. Bloody Sunday, as it became known, provided a focal point for discontent across the country. With little possibility of publicising news of the killings in the press, illegally produced picture postcards became one of few ways that the population could get to see the other side of the story.

The revolutionaries were single-minded in spreading their message. This demonstrates the speed with which postcards came into service after Bloody Sunday and how quickly they spread, not just across cities, but whole provinces.
