@bookbndrbob - that postmark from 'Glittre Sanatorium' must be rather rare. Funny they had their own hammer at such a tiny place all until 1984. I guess that was just before the Postal Services started the savings campaign and reduced number of Post Offices from 1000's and 1000's to....very few

Blaamand, I have always wondered about the "Glittre Sanatorium" circular date stamp. Would this have been applied at the institution's mail room, or at a stand-alone postal facility in the nearby community?

Glittre started off as a minor office in 1945. The title was 'Poståbneri', litterally meaning a place for 'opening mail' - allowing doctors to open letters - for the patients, I would think! It later got more formalised as a branch post office operated by staff at the sanatorium, however nothing is said that it did ever move from the Sanatorium - so I will think it remained at the institution until closure in 1991. I think this tiny post office was offered as a service to allow chronically ill patients (that lived permanently at this place) to be able to communicate.

Limassol, on the southern coast, is Cyprus's second largest urban area. Nicosia is larger.

The Pamplemousses District is in the heavily populated northwestern section of Mauritius island.

The name "Pamplemousses" means grapefruits in the French language. The area is named for the grapefruit trees the early Dutch colonizers planted there.
