Dear friends,

I am preparing a small post for my blog and I am looking for the following information:

Date of opening of the Pогачево (Rogatchevo) post office and telegraph in the Moscow Gub. Eventually the date of opening of the simple post office.

If information about the distance in km between Moscow and рогачево is available, I'll be glad as well.

Thanks in advance!

Maxime

A postal station opened in Rogachevo on 15 August 1877. It was upgraded to a postal branch office (otdelenie) in 1890, to a post and telegraph branch office in 1895, and to a post office (kontora) in 1916. It was 42 versts from Moscow. Sources: 1) Pochtovaya statistika za 1877 god, 2) Pochtovyi Dorozhnik (1888), List of Post Offices in the Russian Empire by Kiryushkin and Robinson (1999).
