Three Post stations and....


From the front, this looks like a fairly ordinary sort of letter, originating 28/2/1879 at Brovarsk. P.S. (post station) in Chernigovsk. Gybernia.

But turn it over....

Three post stations, more....


On the other side, we see two more post station marks:
Ct Trostyanets, Kharkhov. Gub., 1/3/1879, and the receiver from Boromlyanskaya, P.S. 3/3/1879. Note that the post station mark on the front and the one for St. Trostyanets are of an outdated sort, not often seen this late. There are also a couple of almost unreadable TPO marks. One is TPO 19(2 or 8?) 28/2/1879. The other one might be TPO 37 or 38, but I can't read it.

Finally -- perhaps the most interesting aspect, what looks like
a railroad Post Otdel. mark for Borozhba (Vorozhvyansk. P.O.)
for 1 March 1879. As far as I can tell, there never was such a railroad office -- this is just a regular P.O. with an eccentric mark.

From the same correspondence but about 5 weeks earlier, a better view of a couple of the marks

There was in fact a railway pocht. otdel. at Vorozhba station on the Sumy RR. It is listed in the official post office list of 1878 as accepting ordinary and registered mail. This mark was noted in the addendum to Kiryushkin and Robinson's book on railway cancels.

Thank you, Howard. and sorry for the mis-spelling of Vorozhba
