Fernando Poo.

I have no idea when telegraphy was introduced to this area of the world, but like the other colonies of Elobey, Annobon and Corisco, normal postage stamps were probably first used.

 

1899 As in Spain, it had been decided to provide stamps for combined 'Correos y Telegrafos'. Perf. 14.
