This homepage is dedicated to stamps, whisky labels and lighthouses.

The stamps are related to postage stamps, zemstvos, revenues, perfins
and other strange and rare stamps like cinderella's and seals from
Russia (Imperial Russia, RSFSR and USSR) and Hungary (Magyar Posta).

The whisky is about my collection of more then
3550 different whisky labels from bottles.

There is also a very nice photo gallery of Dutch lighthouses and
it is about my stampcollection of lighthouses on stamps.
It is possible to submit your url free.
