Post Office Numbers - Axbridge "994" 3HOS, Shepton Mallet "701" triangle, Somerton "720" 3HOS

A trio of items employing their towns' post office numbers, starting with an Axbridge "994" 3-bar horizontal oval cancel used in July 1859.  This 3HOS is known used from January 1858 to March 1863 and was not registered in the Steel Impression Book.

This next item is Printed Matter from Shepton Mallet with a Shepton Mallet "701" triangle cancel.  The contents are the programme of events for the Mid-Somerset Young Farmers' Club in October 1953.

And finally here are two envelopes with Somerton "720" horizontal oval cancels, sent in September 1856 and September 1863.
