Stamp Insider for July-August 2015



The July-August issue of the Stamp Insider, journal of the Federation of New York Philatelic Societies, is online and available for free download in PDF format or viewing online with page turning. It is available in both PDF and HTML5-friendly format at:

http://www.stampinsider.org

The cover story is "New York Pneumatic Tube Mail" by Steve Swain. The system, which moved mail in 25-pound steel canisters between the city's five boroughs, opened in 1897. Its final remnants were shut down in 1953.

"Planes, Trains, Automobiles … and Horses?" that explores the connection between early transcontinental airmail service and earlier land routes, including the Lincoln Highway. Deltiologist Ruth Sabo shows that postcards were sometimes made of more than cardboard in "The Medium Was the Message."

The featured video, related to Sabo's article, shows a Tuck's postcard record from 1929 being played on a restored vintage gramophone.

A new section — Virtual Programs — has been added to the Stamp Insider website. It displays PowerPoint club presentations that have been converted to PDF and HTML5 page turning. The first offerings are "The U.S. Postal Transportation Issue of 1981–1995" and "U.S. Private Die Proprietary Stamps" by Terry Blum of the Western Monroe Philatelic Society in Spencerport, New York. The Stamp Insider welcomes your contributions.
