Keep our streets clean

... is not a simple work, more a Sisyphean task. Without travelling back to urban antic and medieval odors, this 26 year-old pictorial cancellation reminded civic duty to citizens.

"What did you do today for the Cleanliness of your town?", ask a cat to a mouse.

The Sabine stamp by Pierre Gandon inspired by a David's painting is used on time. It tells "République française". After being elected president in May 1981, François Mitterrand changed the country name on stamps, reversing the short "France" during Valéry Giscard d'Estaing's presidency.

At that time, Parisian post offices are recognized by a number: 68 for the one on Turgot street, in the 9th arrondissement.
