Mail to a platform in 1907


Tomilino, Lytubertsy district, Moscow guberniya

In the 19th century, Tomilino was an estate of Obolensky knyazes. Tomilino was officially founded in 1894 by merchant Tomilin as a suburban settlement where he build his own house. In 2003, it is known as the Tomilino settlement and is composed of several smaller villages with a total population of 31, 145 people.

Here is the Coat-of-Arms for Tomilino.

The postcard to Tomilino


The first indication of the name Tomilino I can find in postal reference documents is the 1913 Postal List. Robinson and Kiryushkin indicate it was a temporary postal office (VPO) on 1915.05.01. It is not listed in the 1915 Postal Guide, but appears again in the 1916 Postal List. In 1916, it is listed also as a platform with ordinary correspondence and as a VPO (the settlemnt itself), and is serviced by the Postal Wagon of he Moscow-Ramenskoe line.

The postcard shown here is from Moscow to Platform Tomilino. Posted/dispatched 11 August 1907 Town Post Dispatch Office and cancels a 7-kop. Scott No. 59. The covered is addressed to a person on the Moscow-Ryazan railway at Platform Tomilino, General Delivery. Looks like they accepted mail in 1907, but may not have had an official post office for that purpose. Sadly, no postmark.

The Moscow Town-Post Dispatch Office machine mark is noted from May 1907.
