Transvaal (meaning beyond the River Vaal) is located in South Africa, in the
northeastern part of it, second largest province when united with
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE, NATAL and ORANGE FREE STATE to form the Union of
SOUTH AFRICA (R.S.A.) in 1910. Was known as the Boer South African Republic until 1877
when first occupied by the British. Second republic came to existence in 1880
until 1900 in which the British took over for a second time. First stamps issued
in 1869 for the First Republic. In 1888 it was conjoined by the NEW REPUBLIC,
until 1903. Special stamps were issued for the town of Petersburg in 1901,
under authorization of President Kruger. Local stamps were also issued for
various towns under British occupation (1900-1902) during second Boer War,
distinguished by overprinting. Transvaal stamps were issued until 1909.
