A Walk in the Sahara Desert

New Entries

some more stamps from Algeria.. first from the France period of Domination and in the end , some stamps from the 60's and 70's..(few..)

These are stamps of a very large series from 1936/1941.. A few posts ago, I think in April, I already present some more stamps of this series.. it is a series with 31 stamps, representing Landscapes , Monuments, and Views of Algeria..The $65 stamp is the only one of these that is not issued in 1936 [1937]..
Last time , I named this series "Sites et Paysages (1936/1941)" and I think it is a good name...
the perforation is 13 ..

from a set 4 1937 "Centenary of Capture of Constantine"
Perf: 13

The stamp show us an american Cargo ship unloading..
from the set 5 1939 "New York World's Fair"
Perf: 13

I leave here a link to a page from the Queens Museum of Art , where we can see a movie made in 1939 about the New York World Fair.. I think it deserves a look..(it has no sound...)

complete set from 1955 " Bimillenary of Tipasa."
Perf: 13

This is the first stamp I present from the period after the Independence of Algeria..
the designs are similar to a earlier series from 1959/1961.. The label Republique Francaise " was replaced by " Republique Algerienne"
