Baghdad East

Railway station in the west of the city of Baghdad, with lines up to Baiji in the northern part of Iraq and to Maqil in the south of Iraq.

A joint road & rail bridge was opened across the River Tigris in Baghdad in October 1950 so finally connecting the east and west bank metre gauge systems.

A complete booklet pane of 4 stamps with red background, postmarked BAGHDAD EAST. Interesting that no Date Die is inserted in the postmark.
