1963-1967 Album

This album contains stamps from the the years our family lived in Addis Ababa. We arrived in the end of May 1963, and returned to Norway in June 1967. Therefore I have added a few family photos as in introduction in this album.

More and more stamps are issued without a portrait of the emperor.
