MPOS Press Release 00-0922. For immediate distribution to the Philatelic press and Internet.
TRANSIT POSTMARK COLLECTOR Volume 51, No. 6
In his street car RPO column, David Gentry discusses three interesting covers, one a Pittsburg illustrated McKinley cover and two Brooklyn Circuit post cards, one from Bavaria and one with many unusual auxilary markings.
Will Keller's HPO column deals with Knoxville & Atlanta and Atlanta & Copperhill HPOs. schedules, postmarks and a map are shown. In a separate article, Keller updates us on the CTC Express train.
Sidney Fingerhood recalls the old days when, as an RPO clerk, he had to make his way through the bowels of Penn Station, New York, NY. A somewhat surreal image is evoked!
There is also Society news, a mail bid sale, and more!
