19 Aug 1907, an interesting T.P.O. mail carrying oval "5:00 pm" railway route postmark and other tax marks of black "T" and "n T" on a picture postal card from Peitaiho to Europe.

19 Aug 1907, a picture postcard sent from Peitaiho, Tientsin to Europe on a train, showing underpaid postage with tax mark, affixed with a 1-cent coiling dragon stamp, which was damaged and therefore to be invalidated as matched by the circled blue chalk. The card was cancelled with an all-Chinese waist-framed postmark from Beidaihe, Tianjin (Dingwei, 7th month, 11th day), and the coiled dragon stamp was partially cancelled with a Tientsin small bisected bilingual c.d.s. Additionally, the card bears a black "T" mark, a postmark from Tientsin French P.O., a black oval "n T", "S2", and an oval "5.00pm" railway route postmark. The card is a good material for study in the field of railway philately.
