Members Cinderella Displays, Spink,London, December 13th 2014

Round Two - Len Stanway & Gordon Peters


15 members and one guest had an enjoyable couple of hours chatting over refreshments, before getting down to the business of displays of Cinderellas.

The term is deliberately ambiguous, allowing members free range to bring a wide range of materials.
One member defined a Cinderella as anything that does not appear in Gibbons (or equivalent), Barefoot or Tan.

Round Two was opened by Len Stanway who showed sheets of the Singapore Anti Tuberculosis Association labels, which had a range of issues from 1948-1963; Singapore bus services season ticket stamps (hard to find little critters, these); and a range of Disney MyStamps sheets not found in the Mystamps catalogue (including, of course, one of Cinderella herself).
























Gordon Peters chose to interpret ‘Cinderellas’ as ephemera and showed his usual thoughtful and imaginative range of materials, including cigarette cards; PPCs of Raffles, Keppel and Clark together, a cover signed by the then Governor, Sir Andrew Clark; letters and covers sent by various Singaporean associations; a terrific postcard/ photo from 1933 of a radio ham’s studio; hotel covers from the 1890s (including the Hotel Alexandra, Prince of Wales Island) and stamp dealers’ covers from various States.
