Flashback

In 1999 Peter Hearsey was commissioned by the Isle of Man Philatelic Bureau to illustrate buses in use on the Isle of Man up to the 1930's.

This set of stamps illustrated by Hearsey features buses from the 1930's and 40's. As the quote from the Bureau says "this beautiful set proves that, like buses, good stamps are worth the wait!"

Three of the stamps feature buses that were in use in Douglas, the Islands capital and three feature Isle of Man road services buses ( the red ones) which covered the whole of the Island.
