Stamps - Postal Services Through The Years

I was at the SingPost Paya Lebar centre and saw this display of one of the latest stamp issues - Singapore Postal Services Through The Years. It is interesting to see the development of these postal services thru depiction on postal objects (i.e. stamps); there is an added reinforcing element of history progression somehow.

The monotone with oval frame design gives the whole set a nostalgic feel linking back to stamps of the straits settlement era. It is also quite encouraging to see postmen being the centre objects (together with postboxes) of these stamps. Afterall, these postmen had put in hard work to deliver our letters everyday, and some recognition is due.

If you want to purchase this set, you could do so via the SingPost online portal.
