Odessa morning (UTRO) arrival mark


In Rossica #121, I illustrated an Odessa VECHER (evening) mark from 1871 on piece and received no feedback. Illustrated here is an Odessa UTRO (morning) mark from 1872. Can someone add to our knowledge base about the use of these particular marks in Odessa in at least the early 1870s?:study

On an unrelated note, the address reminded me of a very strange movie from the early 90s;

На Дерибасовской хорошая погода, или На Брайтон Бич опять идут дожди

I always assumed it was a made up name. Now I know better.

Actually it stopped raining in Little Odessa a few hours ago.

Can we assume it was used in the same way as Dobin explained their use in St. Petersburg? That is, they were receiving postmarks and indicated into which scheduled delivery the letter was to be transferred.

I can agree with that since Moscow and a few other locations also had similar marks. It does make sense. Is there anything in the literature? Why was it not used by more postal establishments? Or was it? We clearly need more examples to evaluate.
