About Stamp

Looking at the results, we'd have to say that the designers of our fourth set of Historic Land Vehicles stamps have taken as much care with their designs as the inventors of the vehicles did with theirs! Tiit Telmet, Cameron Wykes and Joseph Gault have rendered accurate and detailed stamps depicting an early electric carriage to a modern logging truck. The stamps reveals the styling and performance features that won the respect and loyalty of commercial custumers across the country. Planning to distribute its American-made trucks across our Dominion, International Harvester moved into Chatham, Ontario in 1910. But 11 years later, wishing to build vehicles exempt from import tariffs, it began the production of its first Canadian trucks. The Chatham factory became one of the largest truck-building operations in Canada and in 1937 set new standards of beauty and dependability for commercial vehicles. Boasting stream-lined styling in each line and curve, International D-35 trucks were designed to look more like the grand cars of the day than the rugged delivery trucks they were. With ergonomically designed seats in a spacious cab, the D-35 indulged the driver with comfort and elegance previously unknown in commercial vehicles.
