Highlight Story

The postman cycle of the early 1800s, with its large front tyre, post boxes in all sizes collected from all over the country as well as the antique stamp printing presses can now be seen in photographs in a new book —

Pigeons to Post

, by Steve Borgia. It was released at the ongoing world philatelic exhibition, Indipex 2011, in the Capital. Photographs of old postoffices, dilapidated post boxes, stamp printing presses, the book has it all.
