Poland - just two more aircraft of stamps

 Hello, one final piece on Poland and these two stamps from the 1954 issue of 6 stamps to commemorate LOT Polish Airlines.

There are many more stamps from Poland  showing aircraft and many with stunning views of historic buildings and places through the 1960s and onwards but I think  this is a fitting finish after 10 episodes, and I don’t want to bore you with more Poland although I have to say they are an interesting and enjoyable area to collect and read about. .  So another  topic soon.

Anyway this first stamp shows an Ilyushin Il-12 - maybe a bit of the artists impression of one!!! - and a view of part of the town of Kazimierz Dolny which is a small historic town on the Vistula River. It was a royal town of the Crown of the Kingdom of Poland back in 1786 .

This next stamp again shows the same Il-12  and this time the City Hall of Wroclaw also referred to as the Old Town Hall. It is in the centre of the city’s Market Square and is a Gothic building dating back to the 13th century.

Hopefully from this series you feel like you have experienced some  new aircraft types and  visited some new places in Poland

I welcome ideas for the next series of aircraft on stamps  and would be happy  to hear from readers on any related topic at  See you next time.
