You know that stamps are fascinating pieces of postal art right? Like this sheet showing vintage cars.
The sheet is one of the stamp exhibits at the Singapore Philatelic Museum. Yup, round this bend on Coleman Street, is a boutique museum that not only tells the story of stamps but also tells stories through stamps.
Currently it has a thematic stamp exhibition called 'From Vintage to Grand Prix'. Besides stamps on vintage cars you get to see the adorable collection of about 400 toy vintage car models on loan from collector Mr David Christie.
Fast forward to racing cars. There're a few storyboards explaining the history of motor racing and the Singapore Grand Prix. Before Singapore hosted Formula 1, Singapore used the curvy bendy Upper Thomson Road as the racing circuit for the Singapore Grand Prix from 1961 to 1973.
I leave you with this video of F1 on Singapore's Marina Bay Street Circuit which happened just last month on 27th September, taken off the telly. Vroom!
That's my World
