TRANSIT POSTMARK COLLECTOR JAN/FEB 2000

Transit Postmark Collector Vol. 51 No. 2

Two articles deal with turn of the century street car mail (turn of the 20th century, that is). David Gentry reviews the state of the system at that time, and Doug Clark writes about the "Y1.9K problem" (the problem faced by street car lines that were using 2-digit dates in 1899).

In his HPO column, Will Keller writes about the Fort Wayne & Indianapolis HPO and in his TPO column, he writes about current TPOs in the Republic of Slovakia.

There is the usual mail bid sale, society news and much more!
