  1. These are very fine examples. The portrait of Lucy Stone shows a caring but strong and determined woman. I’ve been surprised at how many campaigners for women’s right have been featured in this weeks posts, but they certainly deserve to be.

  4. Lucy Stone was a prominent woman. We read less about her these days.
    Thank you for sharing all of these! It shows the USA post office has not been entirely neglectful.

  8. Nice stamps and FDC's. (and as a rubberstamp- and mail-fan I love the Highway Post Office stamp!)

    My mother has suffered polio at very young age, before the vaccinaton was invented. And although she got rather well, she kept some remains of it.
    So the stamp honouring those who fight against juvenile paralysis is dear to me.

    1. Joy, Good question? I think it is a memory. I think the Highway Post office has been put to rest. Actually I see that it ran until the end of June 1974. I am surprised it lasted until then. That doesn't seem so long ago to me. OMG that has been 40 years. Of course I was just a child when they shut down.
