Postal stationary

I have seen a postcard in the design of the 1882 stamps (Queen Victoria in an octogonal) in the values 1 p red and 1 1/2 p (Penny halfpenny) brown (sorry, no pictures available yet).


(Wrapper, 1 p red, reduced size)


(Reduced size)

Furthermore I have seen postcards, rectangle with Queen Victoria in a circle of 1/2 p green and 1 p red.


1870 (1872?) Steam ship company, inscription 'St. LUCIA STEAM CONVEYANCE LIMITED'


(Reduced sizes)

I don't have much information about these stamps, except that I've seen the values 1 blue, 3 lilac and 6 violet. It seems to have been issued in 1872 (other sources say 1870, but the postal authorities in St.Lucia say 1872, they should now, right?). The St.Lucia Steam Conveyance Company started a postal service but this service was terminated by government order in 1894. I don't know if the above stamps have ever been used.


Cancels

I have seen some village cancels on stamps ranging from Queen Victoria to King George V. These cancels consist of a single circle with 'St. LUCIA' a letter indicating the village below it and the date in the center. Some letter are 'L' (Laborie), 'M' (Micoud), 'S' (Soufriere) and 'VF' (Vieux Fort). Sorry, no picture available yet.
