Showing by stamp collectors delivers
Members of Lanarkshire philatelic society were on top form as they adopted a “superlatives” theme for their latest meeting.
Stamps, meter marks, miniature sheets and postcards were on display for categories including “first”, focusing on milestones including President, man on the moon and Transatlantic crossing.
Attendees saw items covering the highest mountains, deepest lake, oldest lighthouses, smallest distillery and northernmost and southernmost post offices.
“Earliest” examined postal censor mark and the Rugby World Cup, while there was the “last” day of stamp issue and “longest” set of 134 definitive stamps from Cilicia presentations.
Margaret Lyth led the vote of thanks, with appreciation being shown to organiser Dr Ken Liddell.
The society’s next meeting takes place at Hamilton’s Caledonian Bowling Club this Friday at 7.30pm. Crossford stamp group members will give displays on historic Clydesdale, and all are welcome to attend.
