The Swedish Embassy in Washington, D.C., threw quite a stamp party Sept. 9 for Sweden’s most glamorous export — actress Ingrid Bergman.
“Who would turn down having their mother on a stamp?” asked Bergman’s daughter, Pia Lindstrom.
In fact, she told an audience of about 250 who arrived at a special ceremony arranged by the U.S. Postal Service and the Swedish Embassy, she believed her mother would be delighted that the American government had issued a stamp in her honor.
“It is like a stamp of approval,” Lindstrom said.
