The History of the Cambridge Post Office

21 March, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

£3

A talk by Dr. Simon Kelly: The History of the Cambridge Post Office

£3 entrance fee with light refreshments

Join Simon, geologist at Cambridge Artic Shelf Programme & an enthusiastic postal historian, for an informative talk about the history of the Cambridge postal service, an account of the 10 known sites of the Cambridge Post Office since the 17th Century. A small exhibition of original material will also be available for viewing in the interval.

Simon has asked if residents could bring along: ‘anything of a postal nature – stamps, postcards of offices, any postal memorabilia, old licences with PO datestamps (cars, fishing) etc or anything with a local Post Office connection, it will broaden the meeting. But especially of Rampton as we have very little in our collection. We would love to copy and return any items of significance that you can bring along.’
