1972 Lake Scenes
If you have any questions or comments please contact us - we'd love to hear from you.
The lake scenes issue featured photos from the library of the Tourist and
Publicity Department of two North Island and two South Island lakes. It is
interesting to note that in the 18 cent stamp of Lake Wakatipu the lake is
actually behind the photographer, the mountains in the background are the
'Remarkables' and the angler is in fact fishing in the Kawarau
startling and rare colour variety of the 23 cent stamp exists with a border
colour half way between the correct Sage Green colour and the Ochre colour
of the 18 cent stamp - shown in the middle in the photo above. The stamps
were printed in four-colour photogravure by Courvoisier of Switzerland and
the variety is possibly a missing colour.
