Nevis: Main Street in Charlestown

Nevis is a small island in the Caribbean Sea that forms part of the inner arc of the Leeward Islands chain of the West Indies. Nevis and the neighboring island of Saint Kitts constitute one country: the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis. Capital city is Charlestown. Saint Kitts and Nevis are separated by a shallow 3 kilometer  channel known as "The Narrows". Nevis is roughly conical in shape with a volcano known as Nevis Peak at its center.

Two nice exotic stamps with clear postmark:
Pineapple, from set Fruit, issued on 09.03.1998.
Queen Conch, from set World Wildlife Fund, issued on 31.01.1990.

Thank you Wolfgang!
