The designer's initials can be found above the water near the front of the canoe. The initials LH belongs to Laurence Hyde.
The four stamps, all blue in colour, feature a variety of outdoor recreational activities that may be enjoyed in Canada. For the first time in Canada, postage stamps in sheets were issued in se-tenant designs. The purpose was a practical measure to provide even the smallest class of post offices with all four designs of the stamps without a great sortation problem.
