1904 picture post card (Worcester from Station Hill) to French Hoek with a 1d cancelled by a superb strike of the rare HAMMANS HOF FE 2 04 canceller. Worcester FE 2 and French Hoek FE 3 04 transit and arrival cancels are on the card. Hammans Hof is in the Worcester district. Very little is known about it and according to Frescura the post office was probably in a commercial property owned by Mr Hamman. It is believed that only two covers or cards exist with this canceller, and this predates the other known item by 6½ years. A magnificent and rare card.
