1958France001

15 March 1958, France
Motorised Postal Distributions
design and engrave: Gandon

The stamp shows the crossing point in the history when man-powered postal delivery was taken over by motorbike and car.  It looks for me, bicycle man is rewarded his service of depicted in front.

人力の自転車で配られていた郵便がバイクや車にとって替わられる、その分岐点の四つ辻が描かれているようです。自転車の人を前面に配して「お疲れさん」と労をねぎらっているような、そんな愛が感じられる切手。
