In 1879-80, three more stations were opened - Fruchtbörse (in Börsegasse), Zieglergasse, and Fünfhaus Schönbrunner Strasse. [As explained in the "Vienna enlargement" article, this office received a new address in 1890 when the second major expansion of the boundaries of Vienna took place. Fünfhaus became part of the 15th Bezirk, and its Schönbrunner Strasse was renamed Außere Mariahilferstraße] They were given larger oval cancellers, 39mm x 28mm, and instead of the office number had the name. The Fruchtbörse office used the oval cancel of the existing telegraph station there.
