List of Post Offices, Directorate General of Posts, 1936 (English and Chinese)

There is a book in Chinese listing post offices.  Supposedly the URL is http://www.gg-art.com/dictionary/index.php?bookid=33

 

This document may help philatelists decipher old native and bi-lingual postmarks.

 

The offices listed below are mostly first, second and third class post offices from the 1936 list published by the Directorate General of Posts. You will also find agencies with the municipal status of "hsien" (see below). Someday, the other agencies may be added but there are many of them, approaching 15,000 at that time.  A separate post office at a town's railway station is common and not all are listed as such.

 

Locations are by geographic coordinates in degrees and minutes, taken from databases and old atlases. There are inaccuracies as no two sources seem to agree as to location.  There have been changes in division boundaries, especially in Manchuria, and some are noted but not all.

 

There are several Romanization systems.  The Wade-Giles system is the basis for the 1912 dictionary and for Postal System Pinyin (which omits diacritic and accent marks).  Modern Pinyin is official as of 1979. 

 

Town names are listed in Postal System Pinyin with Modern Pinyin and alternative names in parentheses. Chinese characters are in the traditional form, as found in old cancellations, rather than the more recently introduced simplified form. Some modern ideographs may have slipped in by mistake.

The “translations” are very rough, ignore compounds, and no doubt are wrong enough in some cases as to be humorous.  Some character strings cannot be translated as they are phonetic renditions of foreign words, such as Mongolian.  Many place names incorporate names of families, rivers and mountains whose original meanings are lost in antiquity.

 

Not all characters could be found in a single typeface.

 

In the 1936 list, "hsien" ("xian") meant a city.  Now, the word means "county" and a county may come under the jurisdiction of a city.  This is confusing to westerners so, for the most part, "hsien" is translated as "city" below.  Atlases often use a county name, city name, or urban township for the same place on the map. Thus, there may be several post office listings for one geographic location.

 

Postmarks usually read from right to left and top to bottom. As is customary, the place names below read from left to right.

 

ü = indicates a character has two tones
