Stamp of a Windmill in Hungary


This postage stamp from Hungary (Magyar) depicts a tower mill along northern European lines probably as a result of German, hence Austrian influence when Hungary was a part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Like late windmills in northern Europe, the sails show marked twist and the stock or main spar is toward the leading edge. The millstones are on the second floor. The International Molinological Society (TIMS) held one of its international symposiums in Budapest 9-16 Ausgust, 1997. These symposium often include field trips to windmills such as this.
