New "WELTON / BATH" Skeleton

Below is an example of a skeleton from Welton, just outside Midsomer Norton, dated 2nd November 1907.  This is the first example of this skeleton recorded. 

The post office  is first known in March 1899 when a Climax rubber cancel was issued, and closed in 1913.  No example of the Climax rubber cancel is known; the post office became a Money Order Office in September 1899 at which time a steel cancel would probably have been issued and the rubber cancel withdrawn, so the probable period of use of the rubber cancel is short (6 months).
