|Email item||Print item||
The latest exhibition by the Gozo Philatelic Society – malta pre-adhesive letters and postmarks – has been set up in their showcase at Il-Hagar Museum in Victoria.
The exhibition has on display a selection of old letters sent from Malta which offers both social and philatelic interest.
It includes a 1685 letter in French, an 1822 letter addressed to London and mid-nineteenth century letters sent to Rome, Livorno and Alexandria.
These items form part of the vast Juncker collection donated to the Gozo Philatelic Society.
A further letter was sent from Comino Tower in 1797. the GPS said that some still have the original wax seals and postal marks, but are obviously without adhesive stamps.
The exhibition will remain on display in the GPS showcase until July.
Opening hours for Il-Hagar Museum, located in St George’s Square, Victoria, are 9am-5pm seven days a week – and there is no entrance fee.
