Correspondence From Montezuma

From time to time it´s fun to grab a bunch of covers/postcards and start looking for rare cool places. For Costa Rica philately in the beginning of the XX century it’s really common to have correspondence with cancels from San José, Limón, Heredia, Puntarenas, Cartago and Alajuela.

Then, there are those places than I thought never would exist at that time…oh beautiful ignorance.

Montezuma – now a well known destination for tourists – located in Montes de Oro was known for the gold fever that took place in the late 1800’s – early 1900’s.

Here you can see a postcard sent to USA in 1909 with San José transit cancels…a real jewel.
