Hi all! I am going through a container/tote of covers and I ran across this one. Inside of this envelope was a newspaper clipping. I thought it was interesting, so I thought I would share.

Morning BakerJ and all,

Yep, another short lived technological advance.

Makes for an interesting video. Now, where did the wrapper on that big parcel last seen loaded into the copter for the return flight wind up? What a collectable item it would be.

Philadelphia's 30th St Post Office still stands as a massive municipal monument. It's right across the street from the 30th St. Station (Amtrak and local SEPTA regional rail station) which is also quite a grand civic structure. Very glad they have survived to this day.

Also interesting that it seems the clipping, of acidic newsprint, has had acid migration to the envelope, which shows a discolored area about the size and shape of the clipping.

Here's a bookend cover with the return flight from Camden. Kind of cool to see that video and know that each of these covers was in one of those mail bags that was loaded aboard.
