In 1837, Rowland Hill invented the first adhesive postage stamp

It was first use in public postal system on 1 May 1840, but was not valid for use until 6 May. The stamp features a profile of Queen Victoria

Before the existence of postage stamps, ink and hand-stamps (thus the word -- stamp) which were made from cork or wood were used.
