telephone in place of airmail / 電話の登場

April 4, 2012

1965 Korea

It is clear that the airmail service lost some of its importance in overseas communications to the telephone at some point.  By the mid 60′s international telephone links had expanded worldwide.  But at least on this stamp in 1965, the airmail envelope is depicted in front of a telephone handset – a little wistfully.

1960年代中盤には電話網が世界にひろがり、エアメールよりも速い通信が可能になったのでした。1965年の時点で、切手の中の世界では受話器の前にエアメール封筒が描かれていて、ちょっと名残惜しそうな感じですね。
