Burnham Parcel Post

Below are two Parcel Post labels for Burnham (later Burnham-on-Sea).  The top one is of the first type of Parcel Post labels issued:  it is headed "PARCELS POST." rather than the later "PARCEL POST.". 

Both parcel post labels have interesting stamps, the top with a 6d on 6d lilac from 1883 and the second a 4½d green & deep bright carmine jubilee from 1887.
