lattice tower 3 / 鉄塔 その3

June 19, 2013

1 September 1947, Italy
50th Anniversary of Radio
design: R. Garrasi

I did not post anything for a month… and am still looking at stamps with lattice tower…

But a book which I have just finished has revised my view on these Italian stamps.  “Clouds above the Hill” by Shiba Ryotaro told me how important telecommunication facilities were already during the Russo-Japanese War in 1904 – 1905, both at the War front, as well as international newspapers which put great pressure on the Russian emperor to accept America’s mediation offer.

Similar to aviation and other heavy industries, telecommunication was developed with national needs and energy – yes, it was looked up at with awe and could be possessed by higher existence.
