|1936 Overprint of Gabon Stamp of 1933|
A log raft on the fast flowing River Ogowe (or Ogooué) which is the principal river of Gabon, its dark waters flowing for 1,200km. What better river to celebrate on the stamp of Gabon, however this overprint is from 1936 when it and the other French colonies of Middle Congo, Ubangi-Shari and Chad were combined into the one entity of French Equatorial Africa (stamp history here). The four countries had originally issued their own stamps and they would do so again but not until independence in 1960.
