I had an opportunity to obtain these covers
for a paltry 4 cents a cover and so I could hardly not buy them. There are 32
covers and I have no idea how many the total collection comes to. Obviously
these are not postcards but they are postal related so I thought that I would
share them with you. I have no idea what the story is behind these covers so if
anyone out there can enlighten me as to the making of these covers please help
me out. They seem to have been made with the help of school children drawing the
cachets, maybe it was some kind of competition put on by the city. There are
somewhere around 76 Zip Codes assigned to the Cincinnati area so these covers
represent less than half of the total number available. Are there more?
I am putting these up, in order, starting with the lowest Zip Code. I do not understand the naming of some of these stations For instance Zip Code 45258 is listed as the Don Marrs Station, again any help would be appreciated.
