I looked for something depicting winter storms but came up with a blank. I thought I was going to forced to show something from Winter Olympics like this one from Cortina, Italy.
|San Marino - issued 15 December 1955|
To find non-sporting winter scenes I finished up in Scandinavia.
|Sweden - Mountain scenery, 15 March 1967|
|Sweden - Timber Transport, 4 June 1971|
I wouldn't have looked at that one twice if it hadn't been for the sledge, nor this one until I realised it depicted footsteps in the snow.
|Sweden - Oskar Andersson, 24 March 1977|
The Swedish cartoonist Oskar Andersson was born in 1877 and was well known for his signature OA which you can see on the stamp. Tragically he committed suicide in 1906.
I found more mountain scenery depicting tourism in Sweden's neighbouring country.
|Norway - 24 March 1983|
If you fancy a winter holiday where better than on a snowy slope as on this Europa stamp
|Norway - Holidays, 26 March 2004|
I'd prefer to be at the head of this line - going down to where it's warm.
That's my wintry tour for today, you may follow others at Sunday-Stamps-II-59.
