Your right rod,
I had looked it up properly, but managed to post it wrong. (I'll blame the heat )

One of the strange ironies of history.

A Frankish hermit, living 1500 years ago, now has church dedications worldwide.

177 churches in England bear the title St. Leonards.

Georgetown (1913) was governed by a Mayor, and a town council, and for admin purposes, divided into 14 wards, for each, a councillor is elected.

Revenue of council derived from 2% apprised value of land and real estate,
market fees, water rates etc.

Suggestion.
It is frustrating to see a statement without explanation.

Why?

Looks postal (slogan Postmark) to me.

Your WINTER HEY postmark, is one of those strange (to me)
INTERTWINED ROPE postmarks.

I believe they were steel counter pmks, used for mail over the counter.

Winter Hey is just a street or Lane address (Ln)

and is it YORK or YORKSHIRE

I have a Pmk PENGE London, similar (Edge of wood)
in intertwined rope

Mentioned with image wanted in the database.

Sorry when I think of postal use cancellations,
It includes a date.
Seeing it says philatelic counter, not post, I'm not sure I could say it was used for mailing anything, could I?
