FRENCH GUIANA: 1904 Evrard "St-Laurent-du-Maroni - La Rue Mékinon", 'GUYANE' 5c x2 tied by largely superb 'GUYANE/27/OCT/04/ST LAURENT DU MARONI' cds, 'POILLY' arrival cds, bumped corners. Ex "Cartophile". [St-Laurent-du-Maroni is inland, in the west of the Colony. Today it is a town of 40,000 people. However, it started life in 1858 as a penitentiary, a holding point from where convicts were sent to other prisons, including Devil's Island. As recently as 1954, the population was only 3000. Fifty years earlier it was probably a few hundred]
