Geez I am glad to say I was not even born then, queuing up behind my brothers I'm afraid. 1957 eh did not think it was that old.
Love the 2nd landscape stamp with the 3 legged / finned rocket, takes me back some years again, cant think of the super hero name, i can remember the rocket going up a piece of string though lol lol.
