Building a Nation

Today Sunday Stamps-II's theme is People at Work. When I read it, I immediately thought of the forever USA stamps that honour America's Industrial Workers. These were issued on 8 August, 2013. There are 12 different designs, that feature black-and-white photographs of early 20th century industrial workers.

I have received only two of them: a crew member guiding a beam on the Empire State building and a textile worker.




I decided to show these stamps as I received them, along with other American stamps. More information about them, in case you are interested:
-USA flag and for amber waves of grain (24 April 1981)
-March on Washington 50th Anniversary (23 August 2013)
-A flag for all seasons (3 May 2013)
-Edna St. Vincent Millay (10 July 1981)

  1. These stamps are perfect for the theme. I've never seen them before - very striking.

    PS, I do like your new blog background!

    2. A mi també m'agrada molt!

      Per què sempre em venen els mateixos segells? He de demanar-los especials?

  2. I agree, a great choice. I have used these stamps many times, although I am close to running out of them, and they are sold out at the post office. Yet I didn't even think of them for today's theme.

    1. I have received these two more than once, but never the rest of the set. I love the black and white pictures for stamps.

  8. I like your senders combinations of stamps. I've seen the 'building a nation' stamps before but as a block so when they are postally used it really brings out each individual stamp. I love them.
