Old post office celebrated on new postmark
By Michael Baadke
There are only a few postmarks to report this week, typical of the slowdown we normally see around the end of the year.
A postmark for the 200th anniversary of the Jamestown, N.Y., post office was made available Dec. 30, 2016, in conjunction with a celebration at the Fenton History Center.
The postmark features an image of the 1904 post office building in Jamestown.
