TRANSIT POSTMARK COLLECTOR Volume 53, No. 2

Transit Postmark Collector Vol. 53, No. 2 (January-February 2002) ... is in the mail! In his HPO column, Will Keller covers the Knoxville & Nashville HPO, the subject of a photograph in our last issue. Forerunner RPOs, schedules, a map and postmarks are given. In his TPO column, Keller discusses an HPO which operated in communist East Germany. Thomas J. Post writes about a letter postmarked on the Hannibal & Naples RPO, with a reference that may identify the first female route agent. David Gentry writes about street car RPO covers purchased from the bargain box. Sid Fingerhood spins several tales of the RPO days. There is also society news ... and more!
