Sheikh Lotf Allah Mosque

A card from what is referred to as Persia in the message is my latest of my flea market finds. It shows the Sheikh Lotf Allah Mosque, part of the Naghsh-i Jahan Square in Isfahan, a World Heritage Site. The postmark is illegible but the stamps were both issued in 1963.

Industrial Development

Mothers' Day

During 1963 there were stamps issued to commemorate state visits from several world leaders.  How things have changed.

This is a post for Sunday Stamps, now hosted by Violet Sky at "See it on a Postcard!"


  1. The industrial design stamp looks 'industrial', even if I can't identify the different parts shown!
    Thank you for joining in today.

  2. What a lovely postcard. I imagine it looks pretty similar today. My dad worked in both Iran and Iraq. And Libya, now that I think of it.

  3. I love the Mother's Day stamp.

  4. I also like the Mother's Day stamp.
    That mosque is stunning!

  5. The top green stamp has such an interesting design. Very industrial.

  6. The stamps have a neat design,so as the mosque.

  7. That's a beautiful building.

  8. Those are fab finds, Sheila! I wish there are stuff like that in the flea markets here. So hard to find.
