North Island, New Zealand
Cambridge, New Zealand, shares its more famous eponym’s title because of the alleged similarity between segments of the Waikato River, along which the town was built, and the River Cam, which flows through Cambridge, England.1 The North Island community is best known as the birthplace of a line of winning racehorses, but the peaceful farmlands surrounding the town also provide a pastoral setting for spectacularly colorful sunrises like the one featured on the stamp displayed here.2 3
