Santo Antonio da Boa Vista, Minas Gerais (SMG-4055)

Mappa do Estado de Minas Geraes, 1910

Another name: Boa Vista de Montes Claros

Santo Antonio da Boa Vista was since July 1850 a district of the municipality of São João da Ponte, situated over 600 km north of the provincial capital Ouro Preto. Since then, it has changed twice to other municipalities: in November 1877 to Sant’Anna de Contendas, and in September 1901 to Vila Brasília, before returning to São João da Ponte in December 1943.

According to Paula Sobrinho (História Postal de Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, 1997), the local post office was created in January 1883. No postal cancel of the Empire could be safely identified until now.

Anderer Name: Boa Vista de Montes Claros

Santo Antonio da Boa Vista war ab Juli 1850 ein Distrikt im Município von São João da Ponte, der über 600 km nördlich der Provinzhauptstadt Ouro Preto entfernt lag. Seitdem wechselte die Ortschaft zweimal zu anderen Gemeinden: im November 1877 zu Sant’Anna de Contendas und im September 1901 zu Vila Brasília, und kehrte zum ursprünglichen Município von São João da Ponte im Dezember 1943 endgültig zurück.

Wie Paula Sobrinho in seiner História Postal de Minas Gerais (Belo Horizonte, 1997) berichtet, entstand das örtliche Postamt im Januar 1883. Keine postalische Abstempelung von dort konnte bisher sicherlich identifiziert werden.
