Buildings are an important part of our cultural herit-age. They are a tangible reminder from the days of our forefathers; one which we have a duty to look after. It therefore makes good sense that “Old residential buildings” should be the year’s common theme for the Small European Postal Administration Co-opera-tion (abbreviated to Sepac) postal network, of which Greenland is one of the thirteen member countries.The house that we have chosen to reproduce on this year’s Greenlandic Sepac stamp, was built back in 1751. It was restored a few years ago, alongside another house.Poul Egede’s Houses in IlimanaqThe buildings are located in Ilimanaq, which is a small settlement about 15 km south of Ilulissat. The settle-ment is in Western Greenland, approximately 300 km north of the Arctic Circle. It was once a traditional whal-ing town called Claushavn, which is nowadays a centre for a unique blend of tourism, nature, fisheries, cultural heritage and sustainability.
