Transporting people, post and products in past times are -
|2003: Philexjeunes Stamp Exhibition - Utility Vehicles (Design Francois Bruere)
A 1932 Renault coach stopped by what looks like a mountain lake and a remarkably clean coal delivery vehicle
|1978: Day of the Stamp (Design J Krall)
A rather quaint post-bus of 1913.
|2020: Mail Ships (Design Andrew Robinson)
Taking to the water here is a three masted steamer, the Ariadne built in 1823. I thought at first the funnel was a lighthouse, then I saw the smoke coming out of it...
This time I can tell the difference. The 'Antelope' steaming past a harbour light. This was the first of three ships built for the Great Western Railway when they started the Weymouth-Channel Islands service. Her maiden voyage was on 3rd August 1889
Sunday Stamps II theme this week is - Transportation - travel to See It On A Postcard
