The cover of The Post Office Magazine, November 1938. The magazine is notable for containing stunning photographs of postal scenes, some of which you can see on display as part of our exhibition "The Post Office in Pictures", currently at the Lumen URC, Bloomsbury, London.
Detail of illustrated writing paper, c. 1840. In the top right hand corner is a print of a woman holding a broom covered with a sheet and a head made out of a pumpkin. She is using it to scare a man in military uniform who has jumped out of his seat and is warding off the ghost. Caption reads: 'My gallant Friend'. Happy Halloween!
