1922/1923 - Printing Press "Jeanne d'Arc"



In November 1922 and August 1923, French stamps overprinted "O.M.F. Syrie" were printed by the
Capucine Fathers printing presses in Beirut.

The Fathers who ran the "Jeanne d'Arc" orphanage coordinated other
activities: a farm, arts and crafts ateliers and a printing press.
