Category: WESTERN AUSTRALIA - Postal History

Description: 1893 remarkable usage of GB 1d Postal Card to Albany (unframed arrival b/s), re-addressed - the original address is underneath the WA stamps - to the sender in England with d x5 tied by 'FREMANTLE/... - F' duplex, 22mm 'TRAVELLING-POST-OFFICE/ A /WA' transit cds of AU11/93 (inwards) on the reverse or AU18/93 (on the face), a few very minor blemishes. Extraordinary! [The sender asked for his enquiry to be answered by the card being re-addressed & two d stamps affixed. The recipient advised that he had to pay the letter rate of 2d. The absence of an outgoing Albany postmark suggests the card was posted aboard the train]
