2014 Tunisia

On 18 Nov 2014 the Tunisian postal authority issued these stamps featuring two old lighthouses that date to the 19th century. R’as Taguerness Lighthouse, located near Djerba, was built in 1895. Sidi Bou Saïd Lighthouse is the oldest lighthouse in Tunisia and dates to 1840. It is located on a hill called Fire Mountain at the north entrance to Tunis Bay. In ancient times, fires were built there to guide vessels into the port of Carthage.

Neither of these images is of very high quality. If any of our readers has better scans of these stamps and would like to contribute them please contact the webmaster through the contact page.
