This fine map shows Oceania (the Pacific Region) as it was in 1897.
It should be a useful chart for postal historians and stamp collectors of the area, especially for locating German colonies and other outposts...
Post Office Archive
Post offices are an endangered species and we’d like something by which to remember them. Feel free to email us a photograph of your local post office.
The Rhodesian Study Circle was formed in 1948 following advertisements in the philatelic press in England and South Africa by Wilfrid Nodder, inviting "collectors of the stamps of Southern and Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland" to join in forming a study circle. The aims were to encourage interest in the stamp issues, circulate information about varieties, flaws and postmarks and to write a handbook. A detailed history by A Drysdall and C M Hoffman to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the RSC is available free to members.
