About Stamp

With the exception of the war issues of 1942-43 and certain special commemorative stamps, all pictorial postage stamps issued between 1927 and 1945 have illustrated subjects relating to Canada's history, geography, agriculture, and natural resources. The end of the war provided desirable opportunity to use subjects emphasizing the new industrial importance of Canada. In 1946 the Department decided to replace Canada's wartime pictorial postage stamps with an issue intended to provide a pictorial survey of Canada's primary industries and raw materials. The issue placed emphasis on the reconversion of Canadian industry to a peacetime basis.

Train Ferry

Train-ferry operating between Prince Edward Island and the mainland with a typical Canadian fishing boat. The motif illustrates a feature of Canada's transportation industry with the fishing industry. The subject represents the Maritime provinces.

Creators

Designed by Herman Herbert Schwartz. Picture engraved by Silas Robert Allen.
