Ngaio Marsh (1899-1982)
Georges Simenon (1903-1989)
Belgium, and Switzerland issued stamps with the same portrait of
George Simenon by Dèsirè Roegiest and different backgrounds. In
the background of the French stamp is the Quai des Orfèvres,
where Maigret's office is located in Paris.
The Belgian stamp (SCN 1567) shows a view of Liege, Simenon's
birthplace, and the Swiss stamp (SCN 948) shows the Chateau
d'Echandens near Lausanne where Simenon lived.
