1985: 350 Years of Royal Mail Public Postal Service (Design: Paul Hogarth)

The romance of the Postbus weaving its way through the countryside over bridges and rivers, sadly no longer with us, but what an excellent way to travel.

1990: Europa - Post Office Buildings (Design - P Vahtero)

On to Lapland in 1840 and arriving at the Postal Agency, Nuvvus.  In the background is Nuvvus Ailigas Fell which rises up from the shores of the Tonojoki River near the village. In contrast the other stamp is the large and new Postal Centre building in Turku

2009: Vintage Postal Transport

Pedal powered postmen and their Raleigh bicycles outside what I think is the Palazzo Parisio in Valletta which housed the Maltese GPO between 1886 and 1973 (apart from when it was temporarily moved during WW2)

2003: Post - Rural House Mailbox (Design - Erna de Vries)

And happiness the post has arrived in a pretty mailbox.

Sunday Stamps theme this week is - Post - See It On A Postcard

I was quite fascinated with the Nuvvus stamp and the postman's hat! But, having looked it up, that village is far away from everything!
