75 years of electrical light


25 March 1953, Japan
75 Years of Electrical Lamp
illustration: Takeo Shimada
stamp design: Minoru Kuno

Celebrating innovation and development of electrical light – it seems to me its celebrating peace of being allowed to light up their town and homes, after 8 years from the end of the war.  Blur mono colour print shows the country did not afford to take time and monery on stamps.
