For this week's 'themeless' Sunday Stamps, I've decided to share a couple more stamps from my inherited collection today. These 2 are of Tasmania and date back to the early 20th century. Although Tasmania ceased to be an independent colony in 1901, it seems stamps continued to be produced after that date until about 1913 when they were replaced with a more generic Australia stamp. The first is a 2d stamp of Hobart, c.1905. The second is a 1/2d stamp of Lake Marion, c.1903. Apologies for the skew of the scan - no matter how hard I tried I could not get them any more aligned on the scanner.
