A Stamp Card

Bahraini Postage Stamp

Bahraini Postage Stamp

This postcard of a Bahraini postage stamp comes to me from Edwin, who is from the Philippines, but has lived in Bahrain for almost 9 years now. The first post office in Bahrain opened up in Manama on 1 August 1884. Well, happy belated! The post office in Manama remained the only post office in Bahrain until 1946. Originally, only un-printed stamps of British India were used. The first Bahraini stamps were issued in 1960 depicting Shaikh Sulman bin Hamed al-Khalifa. Thank you Edwin for a postcard teaching me a thing or 2 about the country.
