    I found this inside the pages of a 1902 arithmetic book. I think the Number one is considered a pre runner to our zip code of today. No idea if that's right and no idea if this is as old as the book. Comments are Welcome!

      I believe the postal zone was a created in 1943 during the war. It ended when the zip code was created in 1963.

      I don't always get it right. I am a newbie, and as such I am humbled......learning.

      It's almost easier to determine the age of an old piece of ephemera from the printing/ fonts used, than by other means... Sans serif fonts weren't widely used until after WWII, so my guess is this is from the 40s or 50s. Which goes along with the whole postal code discussion!
