I was intending to illustrate the motor industry until I read next week's topic so I hastily changed my mind. This stamp card shows a stamp issued in 1999 as part of the twelve series that celebrated the millenium. It was one of four illustrating "The Inventor's Tale", and shows an industrial worker and a blast furnace to represent the discovery of steam power by James Watt.
It's a strong image, one that I like, and it reminds me of part of the opening ceremony during the 2012 Olympics in London.
This is a post for Sunday Stamps, now hosted by Violet Sky at "See it on a Postcard!"
