People at Work - Sunday Stamps II

People in Europe and Africa appear as my workers today.

It's fairly easy to see the work connection for her. Not so for the first of my workers in Italy on stamps from 1950.

I had to google 'La Sciabica' to find out that this depicted a man on work on a trawler.

I made a better guess at the next.

IL Tornio = the lathe, in Tuscany. It looks more like a potter's wheel to me.

In 1961 Nigeria issued this stamp of a carver at work.

Oyo is a state in the south-west Nigeria with the capital of Ibadan.

To ponder over others hard at work visit Sunday-stamps-ii-17.

I would never be able to manage such fine work as this Nigerian while sitting in that position!

The trawler man looks very relaxed!

I like the rather languid fisherman in the bay. It looks a rather attractive Italian set.

FinnBadger said...

I agree, the Italian pair (presumably from a set) are superb.

Jo said...

You could call him a resting fisherman.

Very original jobs featured on these stamps. I like a lot one-colour stamps.

You really have quite a selection here. Everything is very interesting.
