This new digital resource will serve as a unique and valuable insight for postal historians, and anyone interested in mail sent by sea, bringing to life the extraordinary journeys made by British letters before the arrival of airmail.
This collection of 11 albums was accumulated by renowned postal historian, author and expert in maritime mail, Frank Staff. His own hand drawn replicas of ship markings can also be found among the pages.
