About Stamp

Considering Canada's vastness, it is not surprising that we are a leader in communications and that many innovations in the field were developed in this country. Frederick Newton Gisborne, a British engineer, immigrated to Canada in 1845. In 1852 he laid North America's first undersea cable, between New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. He also took the first practical steps forward laying a cable between North America and Europe. For this second set of stamps in the Science and Technology series, designer Roger Hill of Toronto linked four very different kinds of innovations in communications by focusing on portraits of the inventors. The context of each innovation is shown in drawings and illustrations surrounding these portraits.
