TRANSIT POSTMARK COLLECTOR Volume 63, No. 3
In his HPO column, Will Keller writes about two Missouri HPOs, St. Louis & Sikeston and Sikeston & Memphis HPOs. In a separate article, he writes about his attempts to identify the Riga & Adrian (Michigan) RPO.
Bill Pollard writes about the last Railway Post Office. Not the last RPO trip, but the last RPO car built.
In News from the Cities, David Gentry illustrates two Pittsburgh Street RPO special delivery covers and analyzed the postal service and its (once) desire to move the mail quickly.
There is Society news, a mail sale and much more!
A current membership directory is enclosed with this issue of TPC.
