Froom, Frome and Glastonbury

The first handstamp for Frome (pronounced "Froom") was spelt "FROOM" (in use 1760-1778).  Subsequent handstamps swapped between "FROME" and "FROOM".  Below is an example from 1773.

This next cover has a "FROME" skeleton from 1902.  The Skeleton is known between 7th and 17th September 1902.

Lastly, a cover from Glastonbury with an unboxed "No.3" receiving handstamp, in use at Shapwick.
