post woman 2 / 郵便配達婦人

10 May 1966, China
Women in Public Service

My second stamp on female post delivery in this blog.  The first one is from Denmark, 1988. This girl looks fit and healthy – in fact, 1966 was the beginning of Cultural Revolution.  The life of ordinary people should have been different from political propaganda.  Still, the stamp was made well, with nice colour and pretty cloud in the sky.

女性が郵便を配達している切手を紹介するのは1988年のデンマークに続いて2枚目です。この若い女性はふっくらして健康そうですが、この切手が発行された1966年に文化大革命が始まり、政治的なプロパガンダと普通の人々の生活とはかけ離れたものになっていたと思われます。それでも、切手は綺麗な色で丁寧に作られていたのですね。
