On view is John Lennon's childhood stamp album, to coincide with the 65th anniversary of his birth and National Stamp Collecting Month. The album has 145 pages and features more that 550 stamps from countries around the world, including India, the United States, and New Zealand. The flyleaf bears the name, address, and signature of a young John Lennon and on the title page, beards and mustaches were drawn in blue ink on the likenesses of British monarchs, including Queen Victoria and King George VI.
