E = EASTERN DISTRICT OFFICE

NOTE:
new collectors to this discipline will notice NO "EC " office is listed
the 1880's were years of experiment in stamp design, and above all other offices the ECDO was a proving ground for such stamps (hammers)
The "d mail" handstamp under discussion, was never issued to the ECDO

ENGLAND'S 450,000 YEAR HISTORY (In a few stanzas of a Poem)

The Story of the River Thames.

THE THAMES
THE RIVER'S TALE.

Twenty bridges from Dover to Kew
Wanted to know what the River knew,
For- they were young and the Thames was old,
And this is the tale that the River told:


I walk my beat before London Town,
Five hours up and seven down.
Up I go and I end my run
At "Tide-end-town", which is Teddington.
Down I come with the mud in my hands
And plaster it over the Maplin Sands,
But I'd have you know that these waters of mine
Were once a branch of the River Rhine,
When hundreds of miles to the East I went
And England was joined to the Continent.

I remember the bat-winged lizard-birds,
The Age of Ice and the mammoth herds,
And the giant tigers that stalked them down
Through Regent's Park into Camden Town.
And I remember like yesterday
The earliest Cockney who came my way,
When he pushed through the forest that lined the Strand,

With paint on his face and a club in his hand.
He was death to feather and fin and fur,
He trapped my beavers at Westminster,
He netted my salmon, he hunted my deer,
He killed my herons off Lambeth Pier ;
He fought his neighbour with axes and swords,
Flint or bronze, at my upper fords,

While down at Greenwich for slaves and tin
The tall Phoenician ships stole in,
And North Sea war-boats, painted and gay,
Flashed like dragon-flies Erith way ;
And Norseman and Negro and Gaul and Greek
Drank with the Britons in Barking Creek,
And life was gay, and the world was new,
And I was a mile across at Kew !

But the Roman came with a heavy hand,
And bridged and roaded and ruled the land,
And the Roman left and the Danes blew in
And that's where your history books begin !'

Flight Ephemera.

Any members read any significance of "D K" on the QV stamps

Would this be listed in the "Dummy Stamps" Bulletins?

One of the Prestige stamp books.
It looks like it is a guillotined pane of stamps from either of two pages from the 1990 (date stamp) 5 'London Life' prestige stamp book.

The stamps are the '150th Anniversary of the Penny Black' stamps. They were based on the 'Postage Stamp Centenary' issue of 1940, and combine the image of H.M. Queen Victoria from the Penny Black with the 'Machin' portrait of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II. There are more values and non-value indicator stamps in this design, officially considered permanent stamps.

Your pane is probably SG 1469 n. Booklet pane. no. 1469 x 6 with margins.
Nos. 1468Ea, 1470 and 1472 occur in the se-tenant pane from the 1990 London Life 5 booklet (SG GB concise stamp catalogue)

I agree. Do note that the SG listing refers to the 'pane' of stamps. There are two different pages of stamps as shown. The 'pane' number does not discern between the pages.
