The Virtual GB Album

Welcome to the Virtual Great Britain Album at

This album contains Great Britain collections for your enjoyment and education. Like all collections, it grows slowly but steadily, so come back once in a while and see what’s new, or join the mailing list so you’ll get a message when new pages are added to the album.

This album is a little different than the ones that hold your collection. For one thing, it never gets dusty. For another, you don’t have to worry about damaging the stamps.

So wipe off your monitor screen, get comfortable in your chair, click on one of the stamps below and enjoy the Virtual Great Britain Album. Don’t forget to visit the Virtual Machin Album.
