The launching of two beautiful special stamps in celebration of the 108th Anniversary of the Postal Service pays tribute to the sturdiness and beauty of the post office building in Manila. The stamps aptly capture in miniature the main post office building, from its ruins to restoration. Touted as one of the most dominating landmarks in Metro Manila and considered the grandest and the most beautiful building of its time, it was built during the early American occupation in 1926. The building's Roman-ionic architectural design is considered the perfect model of Neo-Classical architecture popular during the 1920s. Read more.
Stamps and Official First Day Covers will be available starting November 6, 2006 at the Philatelic Service, Door 203, Liwasang Bonifacio, 1000 Manila and at all Regional Offices of the Philippine Postal Corporation.
