Grab souvenirs; Tees, caps, postal covers and postage stamp

The list of Madras souvenirs is growing and this is good news indeed. A City which is 375 years old deserves some great souvenirs ideated and made by its people.

Over a decade ago we started the Tee Design Contest and though they entries have been small in number - 30-40 - we have received some great ideas which have been used in the year's Tee for Madras.

This year, the design is a monochrome and the images will be in black and white - these are a collage of the city's landmarks and have been design by young Naveen. The Tee is getting ready in Tiruppur and will be on sale hopefully from August 17. At Rs.220.

There is also a Madras cap for the 375 years occasion. It has a legend that says - CHENNAI. My City is 375. The cap will be ready on Sunday and on sale too for Rs.80.

The Tee and cap will be on sale at the Mylapore Times office - 77, C P Ramaswamy Road, Alwarpet, Chennai 18 ( near the Alwarpet flyover). Phone; 2498 2244.

Another great souvenir due for release is a Postal Cover with a My Stamp on it. Designed and produced by D H Rao the cover theme is Transport as is the My Stamp. A collector's item it will be on sale at Clive House inside Fort St George from Aug 22 to 24 where an exhibition is being held.
Grab this! Limited edition.
