Grand Bay is a census-designated place (CDP) in Mobile County, Alabama, United States. It is included in the Mobile metropolitan statistical area. The population was 3,918 at the 2000 census.

In 1870 the United States Postal Service established a Post Office at a location near the center of the current community.[8] Settlement began in earnest when the Grand Bay Land Company began offering ten acre lots for sale sometime before 1900.

We sell only original postcards, no reproductions. Most are from 1905 to 1925, but occasionally newer cards if they are good. Since these cards have been stored in various situations for the past 80 to 100 years, they typically will have some fading, some edge & corner wear, most corners may be rounded some, some light creases or slight bends. Many cards will have some postal ink on the image side from being postmarked. Our description above will list any significant defects that may detract from the collectability of the card. We have been in the antique postcard business for over 20 years and are not fly by night.
