Virgin Islands 1915 Postcard


Picture Post Card showing the Sunday School at Tortola, used to Canada, franked by Leeward Islands King George V 1d applied to the picture side and cancelled “ROAD-TOWN / TORTOLA. V.I.” c.d.s. The address side of the card has a similar datestamp of June 1st and, in the identical black ink, a fine strike of the uncommon Crowned Circle “PAID / AT / TORTOLA”. This Crowned Circle was resurrected in about 1914 and used very occasionally at Road Town to confirm payment by stamps on the reverse of an item. A scarce item and a most attractive example.
