With the exception of the war issues of 1942 and 1943 and certain special commemorative stamps, all pictorial postage stamps issued between 1927 and 1945 have illustrated subjects relating to Canada's history, geography, agriculture, and natural resources. The end of the war provided desirable opportunity to use subjects emphasizing the new industrial importance of Canada. In 1946, the Department decided to replace Canada's wartime pictorial postage stamps with an issue intended to provide a pictorial survey of Canada's primary industries and raw materials. The issue placed emphasis on the reconversion of Canadian industry to a peacetime basis.
On this stamp, a combined reaper and thresher drawn by a tractor in use on a Canadian prairie wheatfield. This design illustrates a modern, speedy method of garnering Canada's wheat crop, her principal contribution to the world's food supply. The illustration also emphasizes the importance of grain- growing in Canada's economy.
