2020 FAR & WIDE Series
Share the views that draw thousands to New Brunswick every year with this SINGLE STAMP from a booklet of six oversized-rate stamps featuring Grand Manan Island’s historic Swallowtail Lighthouse. Oversized-rate stamps are required for larger documents and unusually shaped envelopes weighing up to 100 grams.
This is one of nine definitive stamps in the third issue of From Far and Wide, a multi-year series featuring photos of Canada’s most beautiful landscapes.
The first lighthouse to be built on Grand Manan Island in the Bay of Fundy, Swallowtail Lighthouse started service in 1860, its construction spurred by the shipwreck of the Lord Ashburton and the loss of 21 crew members. Swallowtail is perched on a high rugged peninsula that offers magnificent views and opportunities for seal, whale and seabird watching.
