On the back is a MIER AU 1 98 transit cancel. The sender was Ernst Schroder, Attorney, with his embossed details on the back flap. This cover would have been sent by camel post . The majority of camel post mail originates in Rietfontein and Mier and it is very unusual to see one going the other way!

CAPTCHA Image
1900 - 1900 envelope to England bearing a Cape Of Good Hope 1d tied by a manuscript 16/6/00 TAUNGS. A London JY 9 00 datestamp is on the reverse. This appears to be the only recorded manuscript cancel of this town. Putzel does not mention it and there is no reference to it in Bechuanaland books. Although it was sent relatively early in the Boer War, there are no censor markings. It is possible that with the Boer manoeuvres in the Western Transvaal and Northern Cape at that time the postmaster left Taungs for a short while and took the canceller with him if he thought there was a likelihood that the town would be overrun. A Wonderful piece of postal history for Bechuanaland, Boer War or Cape collectors.
