La Central - Classic Matchbox

Location : Pajaritos , Mexico

It was a disappointing visit to the local post office. Apart from an addition to my postage stamp collection of airplanes. The post office here is a small outlet as befits the town and they didn't have a philately section or any stamps such as the Polar stamps that had been requested.

But I did come across a nice matchbox. Now I don't collect match boxes, but a fellow collector had requested me to keep my eyes open for such things on my travels and I am sure that he will be happy to get this.

This is a matchbox released by the La Central company of Mexico and this match box is from their "Classic" collection. you can find more infor about them here.

Mexico - 100 Years of flight

Location : Gulf of Mexico

In the sheet of 100 years of Aviation that I had put up some posts back, I
spotted this set of two stamps that commemorates the first flight in Mexico
that happened on the 8th of January 1910. So it is actually 100 years today
that the flight took place. Isn't that great?

Congrats Mexico!
