  • A Brief Look at the Origin of the Postage Stamp
    In 1837 Sir Rowland Hill, after having completed exhaustive studies of the postal service then in effect, made public his revolutionary idea, the stamp. This was, reduced to its simplest expression, merely the fact that it cost no more to deliver a letter a hundred miles than it did to deliver one a few city blocks.
  • Growing Up With Dolls
    Penny Woodens, as they are sometimes called, are among the most fascinating dolls ever made. Their legs and arms could be moved into very lifelike positions. Their heads and bodies, carved in one piece, could survive the roughest treatment.
  • A Brief Look At The History Of The Post

  • The Fascinating World of Doll Collecting
    Many of the dolls now in museums are still known by the names given to them long ago. From rag dolls made from scraps to the finest of bisque, dolls have always held a certain fascination.
  • Discover How Train Modelers Plan For Realism

  • Top Tips for the Stamp Collector
    Stamps. You put them on a letter you want to mail, or a bill you need to pay. Once in a while, if it is a birthday or Valentine`s Day card, you will request a special picture on the stamp, a cake or a heart, perhaps. However, to some, stamps are more than just mere postage.
