Cayman Islands Post - information about carrier
The Cayman Islands Post Office was perhaps among the very first income sources for the federal government.
The very first post workplace, now known as the General Post Office, was established on 12th April 1889 with Custos (governor) Edmund Parsons at its helm. The profits tape-recorded that year was ₤ 15. A year later, the revenue almost doubled to ₤ 26.
Prior to 1889, a Jamaican merchant called George Orwitt acted as a postal agent for the Cayman Islands in Jamaica, assisting in the mail process as far back as 1859. Mail destined for Cayman homeowners was first resolved to Mr. Orwitt, who then provided letters to ships bound for the Cayman Islands. This plan stayed in effect till the opening of the General Post Office in George Town.
The postal rate for mail in between Cayman and Jamaica was 1d (cent) for letters and 1/2 d for postcards. The brand-new rates were 2 1/2 d per half-ounce for foreign mail and 2d for the registration charge.
It was not up until 19th February 1901 that stamps bearing the name of the Cayman Islands first appeared. Prior to that, the stamps utilized stated Jamaica Postage.
With its own stamps, Cayman's postal earnings increased considerably, from ₤ 268 pounds in 1900-01 to ₤ 585 simply a year later on. The islands' very first stamps were utilized 3 months before their official date. "The stamps were dispatched from England on 17th August 1900 and the receipt of the stamps was acknowledged on 20 November of that year. The three-month delay in between their invoice and the official date of the issue seems to have due in part to the Colonial Office being uninformed that Specimen copies had currently been dispersed to members of the UPU and they had, for that reason, postponed offering instruction for their problem to the Governor of Jamaica."
In 1898, a post office was opened at Stake Bay, Cayman Brac. After that, the history books all concur that reasonably little is learnt about postal services within the Cayman Islands or about mail pickup and shipment services in between George Town and the outlying locations of Grand Cayman until the late 1920s. This was maybe due to the high expense of postage and the erratic nature of rural mail.
Proof from the Colonial Reports, suggests, however, that sub-post offices did exist. For example, East End had a postal branch but little is learnt about where the structure lay or who was in charge. It was reported that on the 1st March 1909, the "East End postal facility was closed due to the absence of patronage." (Colonial Report 1908-1909).
The report additional states, "A restricted postal service was used as stamps may be obtained at 2 offices in East End-- George Wood and Police Constable Watler.".
Furthermore, there is postmark evidence that post offices were operating in Bodden Town by July 1909 and West Bay by May 1913.
On 27 February 1908, the Commissioner made a number of suggestions to lower the inland postage rate from 1d to 1/4d for postcards and for every two-ounces of printed matter, and the remediation of mail service (consisting of the transportation of freight) in between George Town and rural post workplaces began. It was throughout this period that the first private letterboxes were installed in the General Post Office and rural post-collection canceling stamps came into usage.
In the late 1930s, the islands went through their first boom and numerous changes occurred within the Post Office. More boxes were received and censors started checking out the mail due to the fact that of World War II.
In 1939, the building of a new Government Office Building was completed by Rayal Bodden and the General Post Office, which was located the Court House of the time (now the Museum), moved to the website that it still inhabits today. The estimated cost was ₤ 2,000 for the facility that housed three government departments - Customs, Treasury Post Office and Government Saving Bank.
To satisfy the needs of increasing postal activities in the Cayman Islands, numerous district post offices and agencies were opened: Little Cayman, 1934; West End, 1936; Creek, 1937; Savannah, 1962; South Sound, 1962; Hell, 1962; Spot Bay, 1963; Watering Place, 1976; Old Man Bay, 1985; and Gun Bay, 1986.
In addition, various markings began to appear in the mail: "Air Mail; First Class Air Mail; Express Delivery, Special Delivery and Mis-sent Mail". Cayman started to receive its very first delivery of airmail as early as 1935 through Jamaica by Pan American Airways.
Throughout the 1970s, the islands experienced another major boom and the General Post Office took over the entire area of the structure it occupied. A postal mail van service to the districts was presented in 1975. An additional 416 new personal letterboxes were set up. This brought the total to 1,588. Today there - is a total of 2,897 at the General Post Office and 11,000 mailboxes throughout the Cayman Islands.
In 1974, unique prestiges honoring the first flights from Cayman Brac to Kingston by Cayman Islands Airways started appearing in the mail. There is one for Southern Airways' very first flight from Miami to Grand Cayman and the Concorde.
It was not till the 1990s that the post office again improved itself. In Between April and August 1995, a new logo was presented, and a Post Office Kiosk at the GPO, the Seven Mile Beach and Airport Post Office and Mail Processing Centre were opened.
During the turn of the century, a number of the sub-district post offices were reconstructed to modernize the centers.
In truth, 2006 was a hectic year for the Postal Service as a brand-new postal rate worked on 1st July for local and worldwide mail. And what is viewed as a historic relocation, the Cayman Islands Post Office presented a brand-new seven-digit alphanumeric postcode system on Wednesday, 9th August 2006That exact same day the Post Office altered its name to Cayman Islands Postal Service, as part of a process of upgrading the image of the Post Office.
