  1. A = probably PETROGRAD receiver
    C = BAKU G. = Baku G[orod] ; Town sub post office
    D = SALYANI BAKIN
    E = BALAKHANI BAKIN
    H = PETROPAVLOVKA BAK

    Actually, the “G” stands for Guberniya, these are towns within Baku Guberniya and the psotmarks include the province designation. If the postmark ONLY had a “Baku G” I’d agree that it stands for Gorod.
    As for B, I think it’s UDZHARY, BAK.G. since that seems to fit what I can read of the postmark. Do you have the Imperial list of post offices? I’ll be happy to send you an Excel file of them which I find very useful.
