Queen Astrid of Belgium and Baudouin (King of Belgium 1951 to 1993)

Image

Queen Astrid is one of the most beautiful women ever portrayed on a stamp. Sadly she died in an automobile accident in 1935 aged just 29.

Image Image

And of course King Baudouin is very familiar to WW stamp collectors everywhere and is frequently referred to as "glasses dude" :D

Ok, leaving the silliness aside, here is a mother and child - and a father - from the 1915 poem, The Songs of a Sentimental Bloke, by C.J. Dennis. The film version is regarded as one of the best Australian movies of all time (according to IMDb).

This stamp I pulled from a box of kiloware. I won't keep it due to condition but thought I'd scan it for the thread.

Featured is Hope De Somoza, the First Lady of Nicaragua, one of the most fashionable women in the world at the time, wife of the dicator President Anastasio Samoza Debayle and mother of Anastosio Somoza Portocarrero, the heir apparent to the Somoza dynasty until they were overthrown by the Sandinistas in 1979. The child on the stamp, part of a set of 11, is probably not hers, but she was a mother and it is a child. The surtax was for a hospital building fund.
