RIVER OB: 1909 Vieecard posted stampless to Revel on steamship « GULLET » on River OB 7 5 09. Put ashore at Biisk two days later, where postmarked and oval Doplatit (to pay) Biisk applied and ‘6k’ inserted by hand.
Unused viewcard of same ship, under the flag of E.I.Melnikovoi, posted to Hamburg from Ust-Charyshskaya Pier, about 105km SW from Biisk.
Although the Ob is one of Siberia’s great rivers, it seems that ships plying this waterway had no cancellers of their own and mail from their letter-boxes was taken ashore for cancelling.
