Cardiff, Wales to Gibraltar postal history
1872 wrapper to Gibraltar with GB QV 2d blue strip of three, single Plate 13 attractively displaying CORY/C perfins pmk'd CARDIFF duplex dated JU 14 72.
At this time the circled "S" handstamp to identify mail routed via Spain was not used (July 1870 to July 1875) as the 8d rate alone was sufficient to identify mail received by the more expensive and thus uncommonly used overland route. John Cory came to Cardiff as a shipbroker and shipowner in 1872 and established 'John Cory Sons & Co". On his death in 1891 he owned 21 steamers with another three large steamers being built on the Clyde.
