Searchable photo directory makes for interesting viewing

Got a picture of your favorite post office? If so, the The Post Mark Collectors Club (PMCC) would be interested in seeing it . They have a searchable photo directory of over 3000 post offices throughout the United States.

The PMCC also provides support for The Margie Pfund Memorial Post Mark Museum and Research Library located near Bellevue, Ohio

According to the write-up on the PMCC web site, the Museum's holdings make up the largest single collection in the world, grouping over a million different postal history items. The library contains reference material on post mark collecting from each of the United States, from Canada and many other postal administrations of the world.

Along with post marks and research material the Museum has a fine collection of vintage post offices memorabilia. Special collections of post mark slogans, such as the "Pray for Peace" series, are highlights of the holdings.

PMCC is an International Organization commited to the preservation of postal history and encouraging the fun and interesting hobby of Post Mark collecting. The club is a nonprofit affiliate of the American Philatelic Society. With over 35,000 named Post Offices in the U.S. and many more around the world, the collecting potential is limitless.
