Isn't it strange how perceptions change? I've been picking up Wilno/Vilnius covers for 12 years and thought that was my domain. Then, after all this time I actually start to look at what I have and realize my criteria has been slack with the purchase of 'interesting' covers that would be 'nice' to have but don't fit either the time frame or local. Namely, I 've decided I should come clean and state for the record my collection does allow for the Wilno-Troki District; postal cover's to/from place names in that district and also any covers from within the greater Wilno area i.e the Polish Corridor (WILEŃSZCZYZNA) only if the cover has a receiving cancel from any of the Wilno-Troki District towns.
That has meant knowing what towns are valid! When I started, I had no idea. It was only with the purchase of Bronisław Brzozowski's "The
Vilnius Directorate of Post and Telegraph between 1919 and 1939 /
Outline of history and postal network" did that info become more easily digested and understood.
So, I've created a page listing the Polish place names within the Wilno-Troki District (
WILEŃSZCZYZNA. Powiat Wileńsko-Trocki) that are valid.
You can find that page here
