About Stamp

On the 1st April, 1935, the contract for the manufacture of Canadian postage stamps and postal stationery reverted to the Canadian Bank Note Company, Limited, Ottawa. On 6th May, 1935, King George V celebrated the twenty-fifth anniversary of his accession to the throne in 1910. To commemorate this Silver Jubilee, Canada joined with the other countries of the Commonwealth to honour the sovereign, himself a keen philatelist, by the issue of six special postage stamps.

Windsor Castle

A view of Windsor Castle, one of the residences of the British sovereign. The first castle was built by William I, but the present edifice dates back to the fourteenth century. The grounds cover twelve acres including a park and the beautiful lake illustrated in the stamp.
