TRANSIT POSTMARK COLLECTOR JAN/FEB 2011

TRANSIT POSTMARK COLLECTOR Volume 62, No. 2

In "News from the Cities," David Gentry writes about the Phila. & Darby RPO. A new variety and an early type (PH-7-a) on an advertising cover are illustrated.

Will Keller continues his coverage of the H.P.O.s in Georgia replacing the Athens & Macon and Gainesville, Athens & Macon R.P.O.s. The series is concluded with HPO schedules, another map and markings.

Sidney Fingerhood writes about the paper cups supplied to the clerks on board the RPOs (sometimes they held more than water!) and Jean Lenz-Catansey recalls when, at age six, she was a "little stow-away" in her father's RPO car.
