About Stamp

As a result of the change of the postage stamp contract of 1st April, 1930, the Department required a new series of stamps of the higher denominations. The policy of depicting representative phases of the character of Canada was continued in the designs for this series.

Quebec Citadel

View of the Citadel at Quebec. This scene shows the fortress from the St. Lawrence River; Dufferin Terrace appears on the right, the Lower Town at the foot of the cliff, and Cape Diamond at the left. The scene recalls an era when a continuous stream of adventurers and pioneers travelled past the great fortress in search of new homes and opportunities in the New World.
