The postmark
PS! What a nice variety of the stamp. Reverse print.

1 OTD


A last postcard with the 1st Otdelenie postmark
I think it should be all.
1st Otd...
4th Otd...
And 2nd, 3rd, 5th, etc.?
I've never seen them...
PS! Just a thought. If today i go to Warszawa, i know the main post office is in the ul. Świętokrzyska, the philatelic center is in ul. Grochowska, plus there are a lot of other offices, from the biggest to the smallest, spread everywhere (i think around 180 circa)...
At the beginning of the XXth century, how many offices was there? Could it be Kontor and Otdelenie was just offices, from the biggest to the smallest, and (like today) they handled the same kind of mailing (all the kind!). Because i really can't catch differences in the same postcard, shipped the same abroad, with the same rate, just with different postmark...
