Moscow post office


Can someone help identify which branch of the Moscow Post Office applied the 9 - 21 - 23 cancel shown in the upper left of this postcard from Petrograd to Moscow? The cancel is on the lower stamp. All I can read is "15th gorodskoe pochtovoe" but not the last word in the cancel.

Thanks.

Randy

Hi Howard, Alex,

Thanks for your help again. It' a bit embarrassing to not have determined the answer on my own. I certainly know OTDELENIE. But it never occurred to me that first letter in that last word was an 'O'.

Hope all is well.

Cheers,

Randy
