The USPS rolled out the forever stamps this week. Among the men and women featured in the early 20th century images are a railroad track worker, a linotyper in a publishing house and an airplane maker. The sheet includes 12 different stamps and comes in five different versions.Tom Perez, secretary of the U.S. Department of Labor, said the stamps are a reminder of the important role such workers have played in our history:
These iconic images tell a powerful story about American economic strength and prosperity. These men and women and millions like them really did build a nation.
The stamps are available at your local post office or can be ordered here.
