Designed by Herman Herbert Schwartz. Figure engraved by William Adolph. Landscape engraved by Arthur C. Vogel. Picture finished by Edwin H. Gunn.
"Daedalus in Flight," with mountains and sea below, from an original oil painting made expressly for this stamp by A. E. Foringer. The background is an adaptation of the view across the Straits of Georgia from Oak Bay near Victoria, British Columbia. The water in the foreground and the high mountains in the background give the illusion of height, adding to the impression of flight which is sought in this design. The mythical character, Daedalus, was believed to be the first man to have conceived the idea of human flight and to have successfully achieved it.
