PHILATELY IS THE BEST COMPLIMENT
Between 1958 and 1976 the Isle of Man ‘Scooter Week’ was, arguably, the greatest scootering event in the world. To celebrate the inaugural rally’s 60th anniversary, the Isle e of Man Post Office has issued a set of eight commemorative stamps. Available in a variety of formats that are priced from £8.60 upwards, the set depicts a range of scooter rs from across the decades. Also included is a short description of the island’s scootering history, notably how, in 1981, scooter clubs were banned from visiting the island due to fears of disorder. Those days are now long gone and today the bi-annual rally is seen as an important event for tourism on the island. It’s an attractive set that serves as a visible reminder that scooters and their riders have made the transition from public nuisance to national treasure!
