Transit Postmark Collector Vol. 54, No. 2 (January-February 2003) ... is in the mail! In his H.P.O. column, Will Keller continues illustrating the cachets used on first trip covers of HPOs. This time, his subject is HPO2, South Bend, Peru & Indianapolis (Ind.) HPO. His TPO column deals with Poland's recent changes in TPOs, Poland's HPOs and some German stamps illustrating East German TPOs. In his Rural Free Delivery column, Guy Purington discusses and illustrates greeting cards left by RFD carriers. In his street car R.P.O. column, David Gentry illustrates a new street car registered cover.
