Jan 29th: SOCIETY VISIT – Dundee PS

Frank Soutar introduced four visiting Members from Dundee Philatelic Club, who gave 4 separate displays of stamps from 4 different countries.

The first showing was of Hyderabad, a State associated with India. The collection of stamps and postal history demonstrated the difficulties in moving mail. Next came a display of Rhodesian stamps, demonstrating the problems of surcharges, “postage due” and postal history.

Thirdly, we were shown 36 sheets of Columbian stamps and postal history accompanied by many interesting posted postcards. Lastly, we were privileged to be shown a very fine display of ships from different shipping lines, with ships’ letters and maritime postal history.

The President gave the vote of thanks and requested the Members to show their appreciation.
