That's the title of Hugh Feldman's Stuart Rossiter lecture this year.
Nov 2, at the Royal in London.
Free tickets from Rex Dixon. Drop me a line on my email (in my status) and I'll give you the email. (Just because I don't want to splash it around the internet - too much spam!)
Anyway, I thought it would be good to talk about YOUR postal history research thrill and frustrations. Off you go!

Relative beginner at philatelic research although very experienced in science literature research.
For the last few years, I have been trying to put together information on the use of the Wincor-Nixdorf ATMs. I find useful such sources as Brian Sinnott's UK Postage Labels website and Norphil blog. A third source that I use on occassion is e-bay - but not to buy from it but to extract date information, session number and variety information.
Most of this data that I have put on my website comes from personal observations form visits to Wincor equiped offices and e-mails or letters from PMSC members and even a few examples. A few more e-mails were received after my letter in Stamps. A large amount of the data was generated by writing to individual post offices requesting examples of the faststamps with receipts. ( I always send cash but it does not always arrive!). [A big thank you to all at Royal Mail/Post Office who have assisted].
However, even with "advertising" an e-mail address or having a blog allowing comments doesn't seem to encourage people to reply with info. How about a research forum here? Can anyone forward data on the Wincor-Nixdorfs or even the Fujitsu or other kiosks that were trialed over the last decade or so? Links and e-mail address given on my pmechuk website(s).
