Here are two 2009 stamps issued by private courier "Nordkurier Briefdienst" of Neubrandenburg, Mecklenburg Vorpommern, Germany. Stamps commemorate their 10 years of letter and parcel courier service in the state of Mecklenburg Vorpommern. The Nordkurier website lists approximately 470 different locations in the state where either letter service, parcel service, mailboxes, or some combination of these services is provided.

The stamps depict two gates in Neubrandenburg. The .44 euro standard letter rate stamp shows the Treptower outer gate. The same gate is depicted on the Bundesrepublik's 1966, 60 pf definitive stamp (Mi # 496) also shown here. From location scout.net, "Neubrandenburg has four of these gates. This one (Treptow) is one of the three double gates which is actually two (separate) gates. This one was built in the 14th century and is about 32 meters tall."

The 1.25 large letter rate stamp shows the Friedlander inner gate

On March 2, 1947 Egypt issued a set of six semi-postal stamps to commemorate its hosting of the International Exposition of Contemporary Art. Egyptian antiquities are shown on these stamps. The 15 +15 milliemes value (Sc #B10), shown here, depicts the 48-column hypostyle hall at the center of the Temple of Ramses at Thebes.

From wikipedia, "Rameses II modified, usurped, or constructed many buildings from the ground up, and in accordance with New Kingdom royal burial practices, would have been his memorial temple: a place of worship dedicated to Pharaoh, god on earth, where his memory would have been kept alive after his death."

The 3c value of St. Christopher, Nevis and Anguilla's 1963 pictorial definitive series depicts the gateway of Brimstone Hill Fort on St. Kitts. Brimstone Hill was first used as a location for cannon placement by the French in 1689 during the Nine Years War, but the fortress was designed by British military engineers in the early eighteenth century.

From whc.unesco.org, "Brimstone Hill is an outstanding British fortress, built by slave labor to exact standards during a peak period of European expansion in the Caribbean."

Jerash antiquity from the Roman Empire period, issued by Jordan on June 22, 1965:


Quote:
Jerash's "Golden Age" dates from the reign of the Roman Emperor Trajan (98-117 CE) who incorporated the city of Jerash into the new Roman province of Arabia in 106 CE. Located in close proximity to the province's capital of Bosra, Jerash profited from its prime location at the axes of several trade routes. Trajan, himself, is partially responsible for Jerash's boom in growth as he ordered the construction of new roads, including the Via Nova Traijana (Trajan's New Road), which connected Bosra to the Red Sea gateway city of Ailaon. Most of the structures at Jerash date from the second century CE. The Roman Emperor Hadrian (117-138 CE) stayed in Jerash during the winter of 129 CE, and this extended sojourn was celebrated with the construction of a triumphal arch that is known as "Hadrian's Arch." Jerash's wealth enabled an ambitious program of public works to be undertaken, including the construction of a new Temple of Artemis in the middle of the second century CE.
