vintage and contemporary postcards and stamps from around the world

25 April 2021


In 1957 this set of hunting, fishing, skiing and swimming stamps were issued for the four seasons of recreational sports.  I like the swimmer the best - for her smile as much as the waves. the series was called Canada - all seasons playground and designed by Laurence Hyde. It is interesting that the CANADA is in a different (though similar) typeface for each stamp.

for Sunday Stamps - sports
