>> 3.1 THE EXCHANGE OF MAIL WITH OVERSEAS COUNTRIES

On 1 August 1926. the designated number of the Harbour Post Office was changed from 1 to 3. It was reasoned that in a city with more than one Post Office the main Post Office should always be designated number 1. The main Post Office at the Heveliusplatz, which had been designated number 3 from 5 January 1925 was at the same time reclassified as number 1.
