Clearly a library cancel - one that the library places in a book to show it's ownership. It is most likely used here to show that the postcard was genuine.

The handstamp and the postal cancellation have the same date.

I expect the handstamp and initials were used to show the sender's postroom that the item was approved to be posted (and have a postage stamp applied).

Hi

The 'oval' marking appears to be a company 'handstamp', which was most likely used on most of their mailings, and, possibly used as a 'receipt' marking in some instances as well?
