CA-74642, Laura - Canada
* Non-cancellation stamps *~ Nova Scotia - BlueNose ~
Thanks for Laura!!
Bluenose was a Canadian fishing and racing schooner from Nova Scotia built in 1921. She was later commemorated by a replica Bluenose II built in 1963. A celebrated racing ship and hard-working fishing vessel, Bluenose became a provincial icon for Nova Scotia as well as important Canadian symbol in the 1930s. The name "bluenose" originated as a nick-name for Nova Scotians from as early as the late eighteenth century.
I'm wondering whether I can find this beautiful Canada old stamp?!
