About Stamp
An allegory, "Airmail Encircles the Globe," from a drawing by a staff artist of the British American Bank Note Company, Limited. The figure of Mercury, mythical winged messenger of the gods, symbolizing airmail, is shown, with a scroll in his hand, against a globe outlining the western hemisphere. The design symbolizes the speed in postal communication by air post.
