Sunday Stamps II 102

Hurrah to Violet Sky for hosting Sunday stamps for over 100 weeks!

This week's theme is 20th Century inventions.


I think these stamps will do.  From a series of USA stamps on Building a nation.  
This is a group of four stamps from a larger set.  Most of the photographs were taken by Lewis Hine, a famous photographer.  According to Wikipedia, "Lewis Wickes Hine (September 26, 1874 – November 3, 1940) was an American sociologist and photographer. Hine used his camera as a tool for social reform. His photographs were instrumental in changing the child labor laws in the United States."

Sunday Stamps II 99

Welcome to my contribution to Sunday Stamps, which I am putting together on Saturday evening.
This week's theme is fireworks or night views.  I hope no one else shares the cool stamp below.
I don't have this stamp in hand - this is a scan from the US Postal Service.  This is from a series of stamps featuring national parks (Violet Sky also has shown one from this series).

Sunday Stamps II 98

A very warm end of October here in the American Midwest.

It's time for Sunday Stamps.  The theme this week is bizarre or unexplainable stamps.

The first one below, from the Netherlands, might have something to do with posting letters.


Or maybe not.  The second one below I have posted before on my blog.  It's from Lithuania.


A marble? A bead? No one knew then what it was trying to depict, and I am not sure either.

Sunday Stamps II 96

A lovely fall day in the American Midwest, and time for Sunday Stamps!

This week's theme is Foods of the world.  Nothing very healthy here on these USA stamps.


The scan of this sheet is from the US Postal Service.  On these first class stamps are some treats: ice cream cones, a root beer float, a hot fudge sundae, and a banana split.  A float and a banana split might be peculiarly American.  Who else puts vanilla ice cream on top of root beer, another American treat? 

Visit See it on a Postcard and see who else is playing this week.
I have a page on Facebook; like it and know when I am posting on quilts or stamps: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Viridian61/347674418583948?ref=hl
