Rhode Island Picture Post Cards
Main Entrance to Rhode Island Hospital - 1913

The reverse of card shown below contains a Parcel Post Stamp. These stamps were issued for use beginning on January 1, 1913, however on July 1, 1913 the Post Office decreed regular stamps could be used for parcel post and these stamps then became usable as general postage stamps. This postcard was mailed on September 8, 1913 at the regular 1 cent rate in effect for postcards using the 1 cent Parcel Post issue.
