I had to look hard for a stamp for today - finally found this vintage one I received from Finland.
It is a picture of Lammi Church in Lammi, Finland built in the early 1500s. It was issued in 1956 with a value of 30, this version is from 1957. For links to more postal places of worship, head over to Sunday Stamps.
A 5 century-old church! Wooow!ReplyDelete
Pretty amazing that it is still standing.Delete
One of my own favourite stamps which I have shown before.ReplyDelete
It's a classic for sure.Delete
I bet the stonework of this church is a sight to behold in real life.ReplyDelete
I am sure it is. Fascinating to think the stones have stood for so many generations.Delete
WHERE I LIVE (COLORADO) THINGS ARE OLD IF BUILT IN THE 1800S. (EXCLUDING NATIVE AMERICAN CLIFF DWELLINGS AND SUCH)ReplyDelete
Here, too. My home is considered old - and it was built in the 1890s.Delete
I didn't thought it was so difficult to find stamps on this theme...ReplyDelete
I think there are not so many places of worship on American stamps, where most of my mail comes from.Delete
Beautiful church, I always love Finland's steep sloping roofs.ReplyDelete
Helps with the snow!Delete
