I used to collect postage stamps when I was a kid, up to the age of about 12 years old. Sometimes I would buy them in a shop, but mostly I got them from various people I knew. My Aunt Lil worked as a cleaning lady in an office in the City of London and would empty their garbage cans as part of the work. She often found some interesting envelopes with foreign stamps and would give them to me. Here I have only taken a photo of part of my stamps from the States. I do not suppose there is really anything rare amongst them or valuable, but who knows. Perhaps some of you might remember the time when these stamps were in use, but it would be at least 50 years ago. I had almost forgot I still had this album, but when searching for something rare I found it in the cupboard. There are some rare memories of a past gone by that you never let go.
