Lady McLeod stamp
The Lady McLeod was a steamship that operated in the Caribbean in the 19th century

Spink comments: "The steamship 'Lady McLeod' plied between Port of Spain and San Fernando carrying passengers, freight and mail.

"In April 1847 the owner, David Bryce, made a stamp available so that those who wished to send letters were able to prepay the charge for carrying them on board his ship."
