Russia and Persia exhibit

Very interesting material.

Some additions and corrections:
(1) The closure of Karasu post and telegraph office was announced in Pravitelstvennyi Vestnik, issue of 4 Oct. 1917. This office opened after 1 April 1917.
(2) The office in Gumbet Kabuz was a telegraph office accepting ordinary and registered mail until the start of 1917 when the office was upgraded to a post and telegraph office (see Prav. Vest. issue of 19 Jan. 1917).
(3) Before a post office opened in Dzhulfa in 1864, mail between Russia and Persia was routed through Nakhichevan.
(4) Disinfection on the border east of the Caspian was carried out exclusively at Gaudan, not at Askhabad.
