One of the most magnificent landscapes I have seen, is that of the Giza Plateau with the Pyramids, so I've scanned some stamps with the pyramids for this week's theme.
The above are the oldest of the selection, with the grey 5 piastre value being issued in 1879, and the green 2 mil values issued between 1888 and 1902. The 5 piastre has a Fayum cancellation 1910, and the 2 mil is Alexandria 1909.
The next two stamps are from an airmail series issued in 1933, with a Handley Page HP42 over the pyramids.
The above 30 mil with a young King Farouk and the pyramids in the background was issued 1939 - 1945.
The next stamps are all airmail, the centre one dates from 1972, the first and third are from 1978 - 1985.
The Pyramid on the 115 mil is the Step Pyramid at Saqqara which is a short drive from Cairo.
Finally a cover showing 2 of the 1933 airmail stamps, I think this is my favourite of the pyramid stamps.
