1907 Government Residence, Tulagi, cover to England with a Large Canoe 2d cancelled TULAGI 22 JY 1907. On arrival in Sydney when in transit, a pair of New South Wales 1d were affixed and cancelled AU 07. The stamps of the British Solomon Islands did not become valid for international postage until early September 1907. The Large Canoe 2d paid the rate to Sydney and the New South Wales stamps paid the onward postage. A very fine and rare early cover.
