TRANSIT POSTMARK COLLECTOR NOV/DEC 2007

TRANSIT POSTMARK COLLECTOR Volume 59, No. 1

In his RFD column, Guy Purington illustrates some lovely RFD advertising covers.

In "News from the Cities," David Gentry writes about two street car covers with auxiliary markings. One is a Philadelphia & Manayunk R.P.O. cover with "Open" handstamp and the other is a St. Louis Grand Avenue Circuit cover which was sent to the Dead Letter Office and Advertised.

Nancy Clark writes about Chicago "Air Mail Field Motor Truck" markings as HPO forerunners.

Once again there is a members-only mail bid sale prepared by David Gentry.

Mobile Post Office Society, founded in 1950, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the study of enroute distribution of mail, emphasizing postal history of the USA but including information and study of operations from all countries of the world.
