1985Vietnam004

15 August 1985, Vietnam
40th Anniversary of Postal and Telecommunications Service

Another stamp which is showing the Telegraph key in operation.  Behind the operator, you can also see the modern interior of a domestic house.  And the stamp below, with Dish aerial was issued at the same time.

Somehow I have this impression – Socialist countries tend to feature working women in their stamps.  Or maybe only my eyes tend to stop on those women at work?

電鍵が出てくる切手をもう一枚。オペレーターと送電線と、電話をかける人の描かれたベトナムの切手です。とてもモダンな室内装飾も気になるところ。パラボラアンテナが描かれた下の一枚も同時に発行されました。

社会主義国の切手には、働く女性が多く登場します。はつらつと自転車をこぐ、この中国の郵便配達婦しかり。プロパガンダはともかく、本当のところどれくらいの割合で女性が社会に進出しているのか、知りたいところです。

    did they still use telegraphs in Vietnam in 1985 ?? It doesn’t look very modern…

      I am puzzled, too. The room interior where the telephonist is standing is modern, though. Maybe the past and the present in one stamp…
