First the Yorkshire Region AGM, then a coffee break and then a talk by Geoff Blackwell ARPS who will let the meeting know what lies behind photography, photographs and postage stamps. Prepare to be both entertained and informed.

Born in the same era, adhesive postage stamps and photographs have enjoyed what can only be described as an interesting relationship, particularly through the early years of technological development. Stamps have featured portraits and other images at home and abroad and in this highly illustrated presentation Geoff Blackwell talks us through numerous examples, from the amusing to the outrageous and from the nostalgic to the tragic.
