Automated Post Office Coin Operated from Train Station in PA 1947 postcard


A very different postcard showing a lady mailing a letter (no stamps required) and the postman collecting the letters from a coin-operated letter box. This postcard was mailed in 1947 from a Pennsylvia Railroad Station with mailing service for 24 hours a day. The postcard was provided by Pitney-Bowes, Inc and is available to mail to any address in the USA. From a mailing kioske that requires no stamps.

When post office lines are long try this stampless mailing convenience:
1. Drop a coin into the slot.
2. Dial value of stamp
3. Insert letter in slot, the machine does the rest.

There is a lot more information on the front of this postcard (back too) about the Mailomat.
For Sale on Ebay....
