Sunday stamps

For this week's free choice, I've chosen the Pyramids.  I'm quite partial to vintage postcards and stamps with the Pyramids on them.


This set of airmail stamps from Egypt were issued in 1941.

  1. The pyramids and the plane make an interesting combination.

  2. These are especially interesting to me as my brother was in Egypt during the 1940s - probably when the stamps were issued.

    1. Oh that's interesting Bob. Do you have correspondence from him relating to that time?
      I have some airgraphs that were sent from Egypt in the early 1940s, the military over there seem to have communicated with family back home by a combination of airgraph and airmail letter.

  5. Hi, Lisa. Your stamps reminded me of a much-coveted Cambodian stamp - that of Angkor Wat with a plane flying over it. It's not as old as your stamp but desired by lots of collectors. I like anything vintage, too.
