  • Description

    Note: Probably filmed in the Pathe studio.

    M/S of women putting a large pile of letter into a letter box. The commentator informs us of the "... language of stamps" which he describes of the ".. lingo of love". Various diagrammatical shots of stamps on envelopes at various angles. Each position of the stamp on the envelope has a meaning, e.g. an upside down stamp in the top left hand corner means "I Love You", while an angled stamp in the bottom left hand corner means "I Like You - But Only As a Friend".

    Several shots of some famous stamps on display including the Cape of Good Hope Penny and the Hawaiian Two Pence.
