About Stamp

Ontario’s last remaining historic covered bridge, the 62-metre West Montrose Bridge – opened in 1881 over the Grand River – features Howe trusses and louvered window openings.

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.
