Barbados Postal History 1656–1881

Stefan Heijtz

Mail exchange between Barbados in the West Indies and Great Britain was organized already in the 17th century and the island got its first postage stamps in 1852. This eight frame display of the postal history of Barbados provides both an extensive documentation of the pre-stamp period, with many rare early items, and a range of covers with the first stamp issues. The exhibit is shown as a pdf file.


Stefan Heijtz has kindly agreed to make his exhibits available on NETEX. They can also be seen on his own website.
