bird and postal code

鳥と郵便番号

1978 Portugal
Postal Code

A bird carrying an envelope – and two stamps together promoting postal codes.  It seems that machine sorting was introduced in many countries during the 1970s.

ポルトガルから – 鳥が封書をくわえて飛ぶおなじみの構図で、しかも郵便番号の普及を呼びかけている切手です。1970年代に、世界の各国で手紙の機械分類が始まったのですね。
