History of Northern Africa Tanger

Tanger 1912-1939

When Morocco was divided by the French and Spanish in 1912, the city of Tanger was given special status, being incorporated in neither zone. In the years during and immediately after World War I, it received little attention. Then, in 1923 it's status was defined as that of a FREE CITY, governed by a commission composed of representatives from Great Britain, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, which was later joined by the U.S.A.
Britain, France and Spain continued to operate postal services in Tanger; the German postal agency had been closed in 1914.
