1948 Jerusalem siege incoming taxi mail: 19/6 dated cover from pharmacy in TEL AVIV to female addressee in JERUSALEM, carried by the "Atid" taxi service & charged 100m for the delivery service (2½x times the period express mail rate charged by the post office) + cover tied by 5m Kofer Hayishuv label for voluntary supplementary tax. Jerusalem was still under land siege (until the 20th) and under a postal siege until the 23rd. The cover was most likely transported by the 'Burma Road' opened earlier that month. Of interest is the low rate charged already then: at the height of the siege some taxi companies (like "Aviv") charged 400m for the transport of mail to/from besieged Jerusalem. Jerusalem-related taxi mail from the siege period is rare.
