This week's theme of professions was more difficult to find than I expected, but once I started looking through some of my 'accumulation' of Egyptian stamps, I managed to find several that fit.
Firstly a stamp from 1970 depicting workers in the pharmaceutical industry, the stamp itself commemorating 30 years of the industry.
The next stamp featuring the cotton plant completes the set to the onions and rice stamps which I posted last week, and I thought would fit for agricultural workers.
Next a stamp from 1968 for the Veterinary Congress. Not surprisingly Pharaonic-style art often features in the stamp designs.
From 1972 Social Work Day, the Eye of Horus is a good symbol to include . . .
and then my favourite for this theme, which was issued in 1986 depicting workers holding books and tools for the 25th anniversary of the Workers' Cultural Association. It's the design that appeals to me, it makes me think of the Bauhaus style of the 1920s and 1930s (not stamp design of that era but Bauhaus art).
