The Pneumatic Tube Mail all over the world

  Previous article Next article  

Mail delivery by means of Pneumatic Tube Systems, was in the end of 19th and the beginning of the 20th century an important phenomenon. Pneumatic Tubes were used in a lot of large cities in the world for the transport of mail. Here you see an overview of these Pneumatic Tube Mail installations ordered by country. Per city I hope to find a description of the installation and also create a gallery with photos of the technique, and of letters, postcards and postage stamps... Whatever I can find or get. So this list will grow.
