Pictures can provide some important information.

From the above picture can be seen on close up of label that these Stickney presses were made by Crown Cork and Seal Co., Baltimore.

Also, the same applies to the Stickney bar and wheel perforators.

That is a very sharp photo. Thanks for showing it.

Was this pic taken at the BEP? What year?

Thanks jogil for the additional photos.
I was wondering if the pic was from the BEP since as
you have stated before, the Stickney printing presses
were also used by Canadian, Swedish, Czechoslovakian etc
printers.

Also on the right edge of the pics it says AGFA SAFETY FILM.
Curious that in 1938 the BEP didn't use American Kodak film
instead of the German Agfa.

Looks like the pictures were taken by a professional photographer rather than the BEP.

Thanks for the link.
Great photos by the photographer Arthur Rothstein.

Interesting to see that all the postal employees
on the mail cars are armed.
