tell of Perimodrophily? Neither
did I, come to think of it, until this fellow wrote me.
he tells me, relates to the collection of street car railway
The enthusiast referred to is Donald Warner, 115 South 40th St.,
4, Pa. Mr. Warner feels that those tickets, in some respects,
a relationship to stamps and coins, a little remote in kinship,
but he points out that during the Civil War Days when hard currency
disappeared from circulation and became scarce, unused stamps were
into service as small change, and street railway tickets were likewise
used in lieu of money.
No doubt street
railway tickets are just as interesting
as stamps when you collect them. Many of the older ones
miniature scenes in steel engraving, which were produced by some of our
foremost bank note engraving firms. Mr. Warner would like to
from others who are interested in this field. Don't write me,
nothing about them.
