Beautification of America 16.1.1969

Originally issued attached, as a se-tenant, these stamps issued on January 16, 1969 publicized First Lady Ladybird Johnson’s personal program for the Beautification of America.  Its goal was to encourage Americans to take pride in their country and plant flowers and trees.  

Each stamp represents a different area improved under this program.

Thank you Merja.
