About Stamp

Also known as the Percy Bridge, Quebec’s Powerscourt Bridge, built in 1861, is one of Canada’s oldest covered bridges and the only known example of the McCallum inflexible arched-truss design that is still in existence. It spans 50 meters and connected Hinchinbrooke, Quebec to Elgin, Quebec.

About Stamp Series

At the end of the 19th century, there were more than 1,400 covered bridges in rural communities across Canada. Today, only an estimated 140 remain. Each of the five stamps in this series features a colour photograph of the bridge, its name, and key details, including the year it was built, the length of the span and the type of trusses used.
