Champlain Monument

The statue of Samuel de Champlain on Dufferin Terrace in Quebec appears in the foreground, with the St. Lawrence River and a shipping scene in the background. This stamp commemorated one of the greatest explorers, whose achievements meant so much in the opening of the New World. The monument was erected in 1898.
