Description

White envelope with Blue stamp in top right corner. Writing in black ink on back and front of envelope.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:

The evacuation of the British on April 16, 1948, and the ensuing seizure of public buildings meant the isolation of the residents of Safed. The post office was closed and there would be no ability to obtain stamps or the machinery to apply cancels. Consequently an ad hoc stamp was designed and printed on the fronts of envelopes. A circular postmark would be used- the red double circle with bridge- until interim postmarks reached Safed.
