São João da Boa Vista, São Paulo (SSP-1160)

Atlas do Imperio do Brasil, 1868

Another name: Boa Vista

From February 1838, this place was a freguesia in the municipality of Mogy-Mirim, which was located about 200 km north of the provincial capital São Paulo. In March 1859 it rose to a villa, and in April 1880 to a town. A railway station of the Cia. Mogyana Company was inaugurated in October 1886.

Three different dates were found on the creation of the local post office. According to Nova Monteiro (Administrações e Agencias Postaes do Brasil Imperio, in Brasil Filatelico/RJ, 1934-5; Reprint SPP 1994-1999) there was a post office Boa Vista in São Paulo founded in October 1829, which seems rather unrealistic. The same Nova Monteiro calls another creation in February 1849, now under the name of Sao João da Boa Vista. Then, in April 1849, the press from Rio reported again the creation of this post office:

Diario do Rio de Janeiro, May 8, 1849

Two postmarks of the imperial period are available, but not the oldest. SSP-1160b (Coll. Fuad Ferreira Fo.) has a double circle with the inscription S. J. DA BÔA VISTA above. It is also available in turquoise blue and shows in its middle dates from 1880 to 1890. SSP-1160c (Coll. Marcio Protzner) is a railway stamp. In the double circle, the above inscription is now S. JOĀO DA BOA VISTA, while one can read (C.A.) below, for Railway Mail (Correio Ambulante). Dates at the centre: 1886 to 1890.

Anderer Name: Boa Vista

Dieser Ort war ab Februar 1838 eine Freguesia im Município von Mogy-Mirim, die gut 200 km nördlich der Provinzhauptstadt São Paulo entfernt lag. Im März 1859 stieg er zur Villa, und im April 1880 zur Stadt. Ein Bahnhof der Cia. Mogyana Eisenbahngesellschaft wurde im Oktober 1886 eingeweiht.

Zur Entstehung des örtlichen Postamts wurden drei verschiedene Daten gefunden. Laut Nova Monteiro (Administrações e Agencias Postaes do Brasil Imperio, in Brasil Filatelico/RJ, 1934-5; Reprint SPP 1994-1999) war ein Postamt Boa Vista bereits im Oktober 1829 gegründet, was eher unrealistisch erscheint. Derselbe Nova Monteiro nennt eine weitere Gründung im Februar 1849, nun unter dem Namen São João da Boa Vista. Dann meldete die Presse aus Rio ein neues Postamt São João da Boa Vista im April 1849:

Diario do Rio de Janeiro, 08.05.1849

Zwei Poststempel der Kaiserzeit sind vorhanden, wohl aber nicht der Älteste. SSP-1160b (Samml. Fuad Ferreira Fo.) hat einen Doppelkreis mit der Inschrift S. J. DA BÔA VISTA oben. Er kommt auch in türkisblau vor und zeigt in seiner Mitte Daten von 1880 bis 1890. SSP-1160c (Samml. Marcio Protzner) ist ein Eisenbahnstempel. Im Doppelkreis lautet die obige Inschrift nun S. JOĀO DA BOA VISTA, während unten (C.A.) zu lesen ist, für Correio Ambulante. Daten in der Mitte von 1886 bis 1890.
