The 1970s was a prominent period of large scale socio-political change and counterculture during which people felt increasingly at-ease to express themselves through music, fashion and leisure pursuits and this was no different in Jersey.
Six stamps explore aspects of 1970s popular culture, including language, music, fashion, events, food and leisure.
All our mint/cto products are carefully prepared by our own team and supplied in glassine bags to ensure you receive them in pristine condition.
The sunny island of Jersey, located near the coast of Normandy, saw a steady stream of tourists arriving to take advantage of the beautiful beaches, exciting nightlife and excellent cuisine during the 1970s. By that time, Jersey Airport had become the sixth busiest airport in Europe. As well as this, the financial sector on the Island boomed; in 1970 alone, bank deposits increased by 45% and continued to rise. Popular culture in Jersey, as in Britain, significantly changed during the decade as illustrated on the six stamps and Miniature Sheet in this issue.
