Penal, Trinidad January 31, 1994.

Penal is in the southwest of the island. It was settled around 1900 and incorporated in 1990. The population is 12,281 (2011).

From Wikipedia, "(Penal) was originally a rice- and cocoa-producing area but is now a rapidly expanding and developing town."

KUOPIO 21.4.89

This 24mm x 29mm box cancel of Kuopio, Finland depicts customers at street market stands. Kuopio is Finland's 9th most-populous city.

From Wikipedia, "The city has a unique feature in a street network, where every other street is reserved for pedestrian and cycle traffic...These streets provide pedestrians a calm environment away from vehicular traffic."

Here are two different Estonian Narva to Tapa rail route t.p.o. (postvagun 8) cancels. As with many European t.p.o.cancels, they are too large to fit on one stamp. These are mostly complete on the pairs. The first cancel is 35mm x 24mm, and the second one is 33mm x 25mm (Estonia Philately Handbook Hurt and Ojaste). Usage of these cancels began in 1927.




And, here is a another Estonian t.p.o. which is slightly older (1920 beginning usage). This is from the Valk to Tallinn route. It is also shown superimposed over its illustration in the Hurt and Ojaste handbook to show how the complete postmark would appear.

This one would have been right on the nose but George seems to have dogged behind the curtain.
