University Challenge

The question is ...why do I like these stamps from the 70s celebrating university buildings? Possibly I'm missing some urban grit, there's not many tower blocks here in Cornwall - the nearest thing to any kind of high-rise is a lighthouse! Maybe its the screenprinty quality of the images?Perhaps .Maybe living with an architect all these years has fostered some kind of appreciation for modern architecture ...not sure. Hang on a minute, I know what it is - its the price! Bargain.. 3p to post a letter! Those were the days...I wonder how these building have fared over the years. Are they still standing?
