I've long been fascinated by World's Fairs. I've been lucky enough to have attended several myself and have been collecting photos from them for years. I've even written books on some of them, as listed on my site www.worldsfairphotos.com.

Post Offices - Part 7
Jumping ahead to Osaka's Expo 70 brings us to yet another post office exhibit. The Japanese government had sold a number of special stamps and souvenir sheets to create interest in the fair and to raise money for it. Their plan seems to have worked quite well, for there were often long lines at this post office. Stop back tomorrow and we'll take a look inside!
