About Stamp

Alexander Henderson (Victoria Bridge, Grand Trunk Railway, c. 1878) earned acclaim both for his romantic, pastoral depictions of the Canadian landscape, and photographs of urban life and outdoor activities. He published his first major collection of landscape photographs in 1865, later taking on a series of photographic commissions for Canadian railways. The stamp features a photograph of the Victoria Bridge, Grand Trunk Railway, from c.1878. This bridge was a significant landmark linking Montreal to the South Shore. Spanning 3 kilometers, it was hailed at the time as the 8th Wonder of the World.
