I Brake For Stamps - Great topic idea! Here is my first contribution:

Samuel Owen (1774-1854) was a British-Swedish engineer, inventor and industrialist who in 1809 founded a workshop in Stockholm to produce mechanical components for industry. Here is an image of a stamp featuring a portrait of Owen, designed by Nisse Zetterberg, engraved by Arne Wallhorn, and issued by Sweden on March 5, 1974 to commemorate the bicentenary of the inventor's birth, Scott No. 1038, Facit No. 860, plus portrait of Samuel Owen from the book Svenska industriens män (1875) which was a model for this stamp's design.

A foreruner of the submarine navigation the Catalan engineer and polititian Narcís Monturiol (Figueres, 1819 - Sant Martí de Provençals, 1885) designed two underwater ships that he named "Ictineus" (fish-ship) and tried on the waters of Barcelona's harbour. The first one (wooden) Ictineu was steam propelled, but the iron second one, used an electric engine. Sorrily, nobody cared about them and Monturiol died in bankrupcy.







Note: this is a proper maximum card, as Monturiol tried his submarine in Barcelona's waters, and the ship's drawings (shown on the card, pm and stamp) are kept on our city's MAritime Museum, where the card was postmarked on the FD of issue of the stamp (2 years after Monturiol's death centenary. Spanish P.O. way...)
