About Stamp

While the Canadian Centre for Architecture is opened in Montreal, Canada Post Corporation celebrates Canada's unique architectural history through a set of high-value definitives. The Runnymede Public Library in Toronto, Ontario, built in 1929-1930 and designed by John M. Lyle, is represented on the $1.00 stamp. The $2.00 stamp features the McAdam Canadian Pacific Railway around the turn of the century, the station was designed by Montreal architect Edward Maxwell. The stamps, created by Montreal graphic designed Raymond Bellemare, depict historic public buildings that are still in use today. Bellemare combined traditional design techniques with modern computer graphics to create the final colour images. From linear drawings based on photographs of the buildings, he used a computer to refine the designs.
