We were treated with a marvellous display from Michael Lockton on GB Postal History. The first part concerned the postal history of Exeter and ranged from the earliest known letters sent during the 1500’s up to the present day. His display covered the pre-stamp period with a number of unique items from the Corsini correspondence and the Civil War along with the introduction of Uniform penny Postage was well illustrated with a penny black on a letter posted in Exeter during May 1840 and some Mulready letters.
