Designed by Ken Rodmell. Based on a painting by Dennis Noble.
On the occasion of the 250th anniversary of the completion of Louisbourg, the first Canadian lighthouse, Canada Post presents a series of stamps featuring the oldest lighthouses on the East Coast, the St. Lawrence River, the Great Lakes, and the West Coast. Fisgard lighthouse at the entrance to Esquimalt Harbour, along with Race Rocks light, inaugurated the fixed navigation aids on the Pacific Coast of Canada. Admiral Baynes, R.N., had originally recommended its construction in November 1858, and it was completed in 1860. The lighthouse, a circular brick tower 56 feet high with attached dwelling, is still in service. Parks Canada maintains it as a historic site. To illustrate these stamps, Toronto artist Dennis Noble has provided paintings of the four lighthouses as they may have looked when first erected to serve as guides and friends to the mariner navigating Canada's coastal and inland waters. Toronto art director Ken Rodmell has provided the harmonious type design.
