Foods of the World - Sunday Stamps II

Perhaps this post should be 'Fruits of the World.' My visit to our local flea market recently found this album 



from the 1950s; it contained a lot of interesting stamps - a bargain for a 'fiver'.

Two stamps from Bulgaria issued 3 July 1959 were easy to recognise.


Pears
Plums
And it definitely wasn't a case of sour grapes when it came to Cyprus.

Grapes - 17 Sept 1962

I love this vintage stamps. I guess you're going a lot of fun with the album, aren't you?

Beakfastime for me too which is when I am happy to sample foods. It is a lucky find that album. I don't really know how much a fiver is worth these days though,but if you say it's good I will believe you. Particularly like the grapes.
