Description

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.

On this stamp, the entrance to Halifax harbour, Nova Scotia. This stamp was issued to complete the pictorial series commenced in June, 1938. The picture is taken at the city limits on the harbour front looking towards the sea. It shows the entrance to the harbour with a passenger liner on the distance and the lighthouse on the Harbour Bar.
