Philatelic Bureau & Museum

TIME : 2016/2/17 13:17:39

At the rear of the main post office, this curious little museum has historical stamps, telegrams and artefacts, including brass belt buckles and badges for mail runners and packers. Even the mail peon could wear a badge with pride. With wild animals and dacoits (bandits) to deal with, little wonder the postmen were armed with swords, spears and pistols.
