The seventh item

Back to main Wien 25 narrative On to The Wien 25 office On to item 8

This letter was posted in Vienna on 28 June 1915, carries 45h in adhesives for the pneumatic postage rate in 1914, and was addressed to nobody in particular in Abteilung 12 at the Kriegsministerium. It has a blue 25 at top left. The usual pneumatic creases are present. The manuscript numbers after the address could be order or invoice numbers, although since the 'Aeusserst dringend Rumessenz...' suggests that it might be an advertising flier! Or perhaps a message of condolence, as 28 June 1915 was the first anniversary of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria! We'll never know.
