While helping his father-in-law to move house, Mapsareus found a large number of Royal Mail stamp collections, including this set from 1991 depicting the development of Ordnance Survey mapping from late Victorian times to the then, present day. Like all maps over a period of time the stamps, which all show the same section of Hamstreet in Kent, also show the development of the area over the same period. As with all maps I never get tired of viewing the history of an area from maps of various ages.
