Early RPO

Note how popular George Washington was during this period. Note, too, the uncommon streetcar RPO: a trolley that made the rounds of the major points of the city- such as a prominent hotel like the Schenley. Those postal cancellations are clear and crisp: still readable after all these years: which shows the postal clerks took their duties seriously!
