Free USPS publications

In the March 27th issue of Linn's Stamp News, Insider, columnist Les Winick, writes that the Postal Service is offering a free 28-page booklet titled, Sources of Information on Post Offices, Postal Employees, Mail Routes and Mail Contractors.

He reports that "one free copy of this handy reference source may be obtained by writing to Historian, U.S. Postal Service, 475 L'Enfant Plaza,S.W., Washington, D.C. 20260-0012. Ask for publication No. 119."

That and a lot of other collector related items can also be downloaded from the USPS website as either a PDF file or in HTML. These include;
