SINGAPORE ~The Penny Black pub- 2015 World stamp Exhibition ~

...Never thought this nice panoramic postcard came from Singapore wen I first saw it...a traditional English pub view...with beautiful colorful large stamp and special cancellation...Big Thanks Ravindra!!

Located in  Boat Quay, this Victorian pub was designed and built in England by master craftsmen and shipped piece by piece to Singapore where it was re-assembled by the same craftsmen.

The name “Penny Black”  comes from the world’s first ever self-adhesive postage stamp, first issued on the 6th May 1840.
