Today I will share with the club this cover from my postal history collection with some nice cancellations. It was mailed on February 24, 1936 at 1:30 PM in Long Beach, California, USA and arrived the next day February 25, 1936 at 6:00 PM in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, USA. I like how it was cancelled at 3 AM at the Airmail Field in Kansas City, Missouri, USA. They flew this cover all night long across the USA in an airplane in 1936, then it went by train from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA (see the RMS cancellation) to the final destination. The whole process was amazing, in that time period, when you think about it.
