This beautiful stamp celebrates 60 years of the first Canadian Confederation, and the map shows its expansion. Ah – wait a moment, the previous map of 1898 shows a little more land in red – the East end of the continent and the island in front. The area called Labrador and Newfoundland were not the parts of Canada until 1949. But it was British territory anyway, so the map of 1898 was correct.
Enjoy the magnified part below, showing those two lightly hatched areas.
