    USA Railway Post Office history between 1862 and 1978 is very interesting. A free summary is available as an email attachment upon request. It was written by Clarence Wilking in 1982. Also, some libraries may have MAIL BY RAIL: A History of the Postal Transportation Service by Bryant Alden Long and William J. Dennis, published by Simmons-Boardman in 1951. This book turns up on eBay about once a month.

    Does anyone know the dates when mailing addresses used a one or two digit number between the city and the states, eg.”Chicago 7, Illinois.” This was BEFORE zipcodes began to be used in 1963. Thanks – Jessie
