Cary Johnson and Douglas Clark illustrate a cover with two different Boston Circuit RPO flag cancels, concluding that two machines were used on the same car.
In News from the Cities, David Gentry illustrates two covers mailed on Baltimore street cars, to foreign destinations. One is to Sea Point, Cape Colony and the other to Canada, missent and forwarded.
Will Keller writes about an early experimantal HPO: the Albion & Wiscasset. And, in a shorter article, he encourages the collecting of R.P.O. clerks' handstamps.
George Porter shows a post card written on the Omaha & Ogden RPO ED, which was apparently being used as a troop train when the card was postmarked in 1942.
There is a mail bid sale and much more.
