Brisbane Street Post Office, PERTH.

Probably not too exciting due to long period of use.

Very nice strike Itma - nothing better than a SOTN, rather than half the postmark on paper.

Thanks, fds. And thanks for the thread. This is the first time I've selectively looked at postmarks. It has been fun.

I'm confident,
I found the postage and telegraph cancellation,
It's murrin murrin,

Found and identified some of the others I've posted too
Others I'm still digging on

From what I've found, Hampton hill
May have had a PO
They handled aboriginal affairs (for longer then some records show)
This is all just my take on things, From what I've read so far

probably just a worn Hamilton hill but I'm learning

Hi FDS,
indeed, however I am having all sorts of problems evidencing any Post Office at Strawberry.

I have written this evening, to the historical society at CARNAMAH
seeking information.

1. I have evidence a certain W F Wiedhof, of London, writing to the West Aust Postmaster, offering budget cancelling hammers
An order was despatched in 1892
amongst others, a location hammer of "Smith's Mill" Mingenew
(Not sure if that was a flour mill or ?)

Shall keep searching, a real head scratcher

Now with this type of description of the postmark name place is very interesting. It gives a lot of scope to collecting stamps with postmarks. A collecting book with postmarked stamps and place description would be very pleasing to any collector. My eyes have been opened. Thanks Rod

Hi John,
VERY Interesting, look forward to researching.

Mingenew is HOT, flat, and as dry as a Salada cracker,

Strawberry seems to be an anachronism.
but no doubt there is a legend around that.

(Beautiful wildflower area in season)

Mingenew is a typical northern wheatbelt town with a railway line, a bulk handling wheat facility (the largest in Australia), a single pub, a couple of service stations and a caravan park. Today the economy of the area is dominated by sheep, wheat and lupins.
