This cover is nearly 50 years old and carries 4 locomotives illustrating the history of the railways in Malawi in 1968.
Date of Issue: 24th July 1968
- Top left: Saddleback locomotive, “Thistle” No. 1
- Top right: “G” Class locomotive
- Bottom left: Zambesi (I am not sure if this is the name of the locomotive or its class)
- Bottom right: Modern diesel rail car (modern for 1968)
The cover was clearly and neatly cancelled at the Philatelic Bureau in Blantyre, Malawi’s second city.
Stamped on the back of the cover is the address of the stamp shop that presumably sold it: C. T. Stamps from Limbe, a city in the district of Blantyre.
Thanks to: Pete for this cover.
