radio tower / ラジオ塔

April 24, 2017

23 September 2005, Sweden
Varberg Radio Station, Grimeton
designer: Hannu Jarvio / engraver: Piotr Naszarkowski

I really like the lattice towers.  They are designed purely for function – built as high as possible with  a minimum of materials, the wind passes through otherwise it would topple down in a storm.

This stamp is looking up at one of 6 transmitters at the radio station at Varberg in Sweden, built in 1922 to 1924.  Now it is classified as a World Heritage Site and opened to public on Alexanderson Day.

鉄塔がとても好きです。少ない素材で出来るだけ高く、風に倒れないようスカスカに組んである、機能に徹した構造体。

この切手は世界遺産にも指定されている、スェーデンにあるヴァールベリのグリメトン無線局(1922年から24年に建設)の鉄塔のひとつを見上げた図です。鉄塔も、切手も美しい♡
