The Royal Mail has issued a new set of stamps entitled ‘Royal Mail Heritage: Transport’. It is designed to reflect the movement of mail via methods of transport over the years.
The 1970s is represented by a Mini Van: “Royal Mail Minivan, 1970s. Minivans were purchased in large numbers in the 1970s following the demise of the Morris Minor. They were ideal for smaller collection and delivery duties in towns, but low height and limited ground clearance made them less suitable for rural deliveries.”
