Tasmania Envelope to Tattersals with Tasmanian Railways Document affixed
Envelope to Tattersalls with Tasmanian Railways Document affixed to reverse. Carried from Northern Tasmania to Hobart. The post office refused to deliver mail address to Tattersalls at this time because they conducted Lotteries and the anti-gambling lobby group was very powerful. Tattersalls came up with an elaborate system of forwarding addresses through agents and also had mail delivered by rail instead of through the post in order to circumvent the regulations. In due course they became the biggest customer of the Tasmanian Colonial post office.
