The stamps show a portion of the area known today as "Lower Town," at the foot of the cliff below where the present Citadel stands. In the summer of 1908 Canadians honoured the 300th anniversary of the founding of Quebec in 1608 by Samuel de Champlain, the French explorer and colonizer. In March, 1908 the government proposed to issue a series of postage stamps to commemorate the occasion. In view of the marked departure from the precedent in subject matter for the proposed stamp design, the Department sought the permission of King Edward VII to use portraits of non-royal persons and historical subjects on stamps of permanent validity. The King consented, and the stamp were released on July, 1908 for sale to the public throughout the Dominion before the Prince of Wales (later King George V) reached Québec.
