Thanks, Joy! I figured that you'd have plenty more to say about it.

Here is a 1927, 40c postal card (Mi #P20) from French-administered Saarland. Cancellation is Saarbruecken 2 train station (BHF = Bahnhof).

Usually, on the old German cancels, the old city center P.O. is #1, and train station P.O. is #2.

Reposting because my most recently uploaded images appear to have gone missing during the move to the new server.

This one was a gift from a bookbinding customer (Swiss American) from several years ago. It is a Swiss National Celebration postcard of 1916 (Mi # P52 01).

Between 1910 and 1937 Switzerland issued special postcards annually on August 1 to celebrate National Day, the day of founding in 1291. Sometimes just one picture design was produced, and sometimes as many as five (1920). For 1916, there are two, so the Michel "01" on the cat. # signifies that this is the card which depicts "Ceres stopping Mars, the god of war".

"Bruder Klaus" shown on the card opposite the 5c William Tell indicum, represents Nicholas of Fluehe (1417-1487), known as Brother Klaus, the patron saint of Switzerland. He was known as a man of complete moral integrity. The trilingual inscription on the bottom of the card states "for the troubled soldiers". Although Switzerland remained neutral throughout WWI, the call to active duty of the country's young men must have caused some hardship for them.

Erilaz, the Danish card is very interesting. Does this indicate that a telegraph service is also carrying local courier mail?

Yes, and this company also established the first telephone service in Copenhagen.

Quote:
Kjøbenhavns By- og Hustelegraf was founded in 1879 by the telegraph engineer Severin Lauritzen and the telephone operator Thaulow. The company set up private telephone lines over short distances, for example between an office and a factory. It also provided the telegraph service in Copenhagen , particularly with small telegraph stations across the city communicating with each other by telephone. In 1881 the American The International Bell Telephone Co. established itself in Denmark and opened the first public telephone exchange .

From an RPSL Zoom presentation:

Quote:
* 19 July 1879 private posts were legalised in Denmark by a Royal decree.
* December 1879ff: Kjøbenhavns By- og Hus Telegraf established ... others followed.
* 1 October 1888: a new postal law was introduced forbidding the establishment of new local posts or the expansion of existing ones.
* 1892: Of the 17 local posts in business in the 1880s. Only one remained.

Erilaz, I'm quite enjoying watching your postal card collection grow! Which countries are you finding the hardest to get?

Here are two recent additions that I like for the locomotive and steamship. The Guatemala postal card spotlights the northern extension of their rail line. And the Columbia envelope indicates delivery by riverboat.
