Saint-Pierre et Miquelon 2015

On 6 June 2015 Saint-Pierre et Miquelon issued a set of stamps incorporated in a souvenir sheet commemorating old cars. The stamp at the lower right of the sheet shows Tête de Galantry Lightouse in the background. Because of it’s proximity to the airport the structure was demolished in 1980 and replaced by Galantry Lighthouse nearby. Prior to it’s destruction Tête de Galantry was the oldest light station in the French territory of Saint-Pierre and Miquelon.

2015 Morocco – Cape Spartel Lighthouse

On 21 April 2015 Poste Maroc issued a new stamp to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Cape Spartel Lighthouse. As a result of the wreck of a Brazilian training vessel with tremendous loss of life in November 1860, the king of Morocco authorized the construction of Cape Spartel Lighthouse. The construction was completed in late 1864 and is located at the southwest approach to the Strait of Gibraltar.
