Cover - France

Another lovely cover from France. This one was sent from Trigny. Trigny is a commune in the Marne department of North Eastern France. Both Trigny and Marne can be seen on the clear cancellation on the stamps.

The stamps on the cover are two out of the set of six stamps issued commemorating the journey of the evolution of bicycles from invention till date. ''Les Velocipede des Origenes a nos jours'' in French. Velocipede literally means fast foot.

The stamps on this series are:
The Draisienne
Velocipede Pedals
Bicycle chain
The Penny Farthing
The bicycle tyre
The city bike.
