The Kosmos Era 1880 - 1901


An era with close connections to Germany was the Kosmos Era. In the time between 1880-1901 the German Steam Shipping Company Kosmos (Deutsche Dampfschifffahrtsgesellschaft Kosmos) carried the mail of the Falkland Islands on the outward and inward direction between the Falkland Islands and England.

One of the most interesting persons involved to that connection was Hugo Schlottfeldt as shipping agent, living in Jubelee Villa, Stanley with his wife Magda. Hugo Sch. was a keen collector of stamps and a 2nd job stamp dealer with many conncetion to the whole world. A lot of postal history covers and postcards have survived and enjoy the postal history collections of philatelists.


Here an article about part of that topic, published in the September 2009 issue of The Upland Goose, the quarterley journal of the Falkland Islands Study Group ( FIPSG ):
