The Lukungu sub-office opened in July 1896; however the railway terminus had reached Tumba by that date, and the datestamp was therefore transferred there and from 1897 was used concurrently with the Tumba c.d.s, until withdrawn in 1898. An interesting pair of cards, the first a very early use, the second proving the use of the scarce Lukungu c.d.s at Tumba. (2). Photo on Page 142. (Image1)
