           The stamp designs for the  1971  Christmas Issue of the Bahamas by Miss Jennifer M. Toombs were based on the work of local
           artists supplied in the form of collages of cutouts from Christmas cards and similar materials.  The following sheets show the
                          development of Tombs'  ideas as she worked ideas into the final  designs for the stamps.
