Wt1: I'm just giving this a bump. If Rod can get pages on pole insulators surely someone can contribute something on Alexander Graham Bell and don' forget his contribution to aviation in Canada.

I read some of this thread, see below, earlier and was turned off by it...

Building a worthwhile stamp collection is no piece of cake

I love my little stamp collection....

Here is my contribution: A stamp and a quote



When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.

My Gosh! I went for supper and look what happened. I'm sure there's more and we even turned up a Canadian insulator stamp - hopefully one that Rod doesn't have. LOL!

EDIT: whoops - laughing at myself - Rod put the stamp on. Okay - no more wine at supper!
