Cool Postmarks?

Does anyone have any fun postmarks? I attached my best one although I used to have a fun Shrek one that is now since gone unfortunately.

I’m sure that people prefer “Thinking of You” to this rightfully unpopular one. :sweat_smile:

Oh, I appreciate the intent, too–but I also understand the disappointment that the poor fishies got squashed in the name of energy conservation. :joy:

For the top left postmark from Hong Kong, it shows the “The Old General Post Office Building” that was demolished in 1976 :frowning_face: 29 post offices offer this pictorial postmark.

Here are the other 11 Pictorial Postmarks of different post offices:

Thanks for sharing this information. I looked up what the building looked like… it was beautiful! Such a shame it is gone. But I like that they saved that arch from the old building with the saying on it: “as cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country”. It’s a nice slogan for a post office.

Sadly, the current General Post Office (which displays the arch) will be demolished in a few years time, to make way for fancy office buildings…
