Historical Factoid

An interesting little point jumped out at me while reading The Shadow: The Veiled Prophet (see below). At one point in the story, Detective Joe Cardona receives a letter and notices that it has a two cent stamp instead of the normal three cent stamp, which means that the letter was mailed from inside New York City.

I never knew that there used to be different stamps for internal city mail.
