TRANSIT POSTMARK COLLECTOR JUL/AUG 2011

TRANSIT POSTMARK COLLECTOR Volume 62, No. 5

In his HPO column, Will Keller continues his series on Little Rock HPOs to Texarkana and Shreveport. He illustrates more schedules, a map and postmarks.

Bill Polllard has provided some pictures of the Little Rock HPOs, which are reproduced (in color!) in the issue.

In News from the Cities, David Gentry announces an upcoming auction of the Robert Truax collection of street car RPOs. Knowing Truax's collection, I am sure this will be the street car sale of the century!
