Description

Commencing with the issue of 1928, the Post Office Department for the first time utilized its higher value stamps with regular issue for the purpose of depicting Canadian scenes of geographical and industrial interest from coast to coast. This was a significant event in the development of Canadian postage stamps as a medium of information about Canada. The first stamps released under this new policy showed wide diversity of subjects. They ranged from the internationally famous fishing schooner Bluenose, on the Atlantic Coast, to scenic Mount Hurd in British Columbia. The scheme met with instant public approval. The Department has continued scenic stamps in each regular issue since 1928. With a few exceptions of commemorative issues prior to 1928, Canadian postage stamps portrayed the royal family.

Represented on this stamp, harvesting the wheat crop in Western Canada. The scene shows a western homestead near the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, and horse-drawn equipment typical of grain-growing on a small scale. A transcontinental train, with mountain scenery in the distance, forms the background of the scene. This stamps typifies the agricultural industry of Western Canada.
