brought to you by the letter S

Yeah, they work, work, work
All week 'til the job gets done
...That's how country boys roll*

Three Brazilians busily working away at sewing, sawing and making shoes
this series came out between 2005 and 2007
I find the one eyed faces to be just a little creepy

this stamp is also from Brazil, featuring the famous soccer star Pelé scoring his 1000th goal.


Pelé, whose real name is Edson Arantes do Nascimento, scored the goal on 19th November, 1969 at Maracaña Stadium

  1. I didn't expect to see Pele or any other footballer for that matter; the workers are hard at it.

  2. Funny, I did wonder if footballers would count but the ones I have are just standing there for their team photos, so I decided not.

  3. You could say these are all striking stamps from Brazil.

  4. @ Joy - badumbum!

    The workers stamps are really cool. I believe there is a popcorn seller in the set as well.

  5. I have published some from this set in another entry for "Sunday Stamps": http://mailadventures.blogspot.com/2014/10/in-612-professions-on-stamps.html

    I also didn't think of footballers as "workers" :)

  6. I have these series of stamps too. The word Carpintero is also what we called a Carpenter in my native language which is Tagalog (Philippines)
