Barns Postcard Stamps ( Postcard Stamp 44￠)
The USPS issues four postcard stamps to celebrate the history and beauty of American barns. The first barns were built in America, inspired by England’s design idea. A barn refers to a structure that houses livestock. Plenty of barns in America have different types, which serve other purposes. They are many types of barns, like apple barns, round barns, English barns（U.S.), and so on.
According to the description of USPS, the artist created four types of iconic barns in the rural American landscape. Each one symbolizes one of the four seasons. For example, the round barn with hazy light shining under the warm atmosphere reflects the fall. The forebay barn with green background is in spring. The gambrel-rooted barn is in summer, and the Western barn is on a cold winter night.
Barns play a vital role in American history, and it has already become part of American culture. From these barns, we can see how the past generation worked and the wisdom they left behind.
