14/Feb Re-Used Envelopes

John Jaques has visited us before and now returns with a different topic. His display will show how people have re-used postal material beginning in the Victorian period and ending with contemporary envelopes. The majority of the display centres on the austerity era of WWII through to the early 1950’s when paper shortages gave rise to the ‘economy label’. John’s display forms part of an extensive collection of ‘reuse labels’ and many items are unique.
