Sunday Stamps II : A-Z. 'J'

Trying to create links from one week to the next seemed a good idea when the A-Z started. Now it has become more than a joke.

After our holiday in the USA and last week's Gulliver's Travels my wife has said she needs to travel again.

"No she went on her own accord!"

The stamp issued on 2 October 1972 depicts the College of Arts, Science and Technology at Kingston.

The only other country beginning with 'J' for which I have some stamps is - 

Japan - 20 August 1950
Sado-Yahiko Quasi-National Park
At least the Park's name contains a 'K' to link to next week. However I must confess to being somewhat disappointed at not having a stamp from Japan showing a lady in a kimono.

To learn more about the history of Jamaica and to see other stamps chosen for 'J' please visit the links at Sunday-stamps-II-147.

Nice stamps, and I like this lot of green.

J is not a popular letter for naming countries, is it?
I've not heard of a 'quasi national park' before - this definitely needs some research on my part!

Great stamps this week.

More about Jamaica, great! It is an almost unknown place for me.
The stamps from Japan, in general, are very well designed, in my opinion.

Both places look lovely and green. National parks seem to be a popular subject on Japan's stamps.
