TRANSIT POSTMARK COLLECTOR MAY/JUN 2008

TRANSIT POSTMARK COLLECTOR Volume 59, No. 4

In his HPO column, Will Keller continues his discussion of HPO 29. This time, the line is Richmond & Louisville HPO, precursor to Lou & Lynch, topic of his last column.

In "News from the Cities," David Gentry illustrates two covers, each having two street car markings. One cover has two (different) Cleveland Circuit postmarks, the other has two impressions of a Pittsburgh Street car RPO flag machine. In both cases, the first postmarking was incomplete.

As an introduction to this month's mail sale, Foreign Director Derek Mauri writes about his impressions of a New York Central Railroad lot he won in an earlier auction.

There is a want list of lines needed for tracing, society news and much more!
