Canada's pictorial stamps of 1938, covering the higher values, represented a very definite theme showing Canada's gateways to the north, south, east and west. The precedent established in 1928 of utilizing the higher denominations to illustrate scenes and subjects of Canadian geographical, industrial and historical interest, follows in this series. In an endeavour to maintain artistic balance of the designs, the Post Offices Department decided in the case of the pictorial stamps of this issue to eliminate subject descriptions from the designs. This information appears in English and French in the marginal paper along with the plate number.
This stamp depicts the old Fort Garry Gate at Winnipeg, Manitoba, and symbolizes the Gateway to the Red River Country, the Prairies and the Middle West. It also suggests the story of the Canadian fur trade and the development of the West.
