A Short History of the Penny Post

These stamps are my own fantasy rendition of the Penny Post,
which originated in 1680 in London, when a merchant, one William
Dockwra, established a local postal service for the city.

In 1840 Rowland Hill established a national Penny Post for Britain.
The Penny Black, the world's first postage stamp was born.
