Click to see the ship being built! (190 k)

On this site, I have put together some subjects related to my hobby; collecting stamps and other postal items related to ships and shipping. As there are more than 20,000 stamps showing ships, I had to specialize. So I chose for transatlantic passenger lines, or The Blue Riband.
Another interesting subject to explore is shipping related meter stamps. There are no catalogues on this subject, so it is always a surprise what you find.
