Description

RISHON LE ZION to OLD CITY JERUSALEM business postcard pre-printed "printed paper rate" (to Arab chemists), franked 3m (Ba 91) PM rate and postmarked 29 FE 48. A scarce destination for Jewish mail at this time: Arab forces blocked Jewish access to the Old City as of 29 Dec. 1947. Also a scarce origin since as of Feb. 1948 transportation from RLZ had to be diverted to time-consuming byways for security reasons.
