Sunday Stamps II - 154

1972, Canada, Quebec City
designer: Reinhard Derreth

Quebec City is one of the oldest cities in North America and has the only remaining fortified wall north of Mexico. Vieux Québec is a Unesco World Heritage Site. One of its most prominent buildings, shown here on the stamp, is the grand railway hotel, the Chateau Frontenac. Quebec has always been a capital city, from its earliest settlement in New France to Lower Canada to the Province of Quebec.

for the letter Q - Quebec


  1. Old railway hotels are always built with such impressive style.

  2. So beautiful stamp! And it brings me good memories of visiting Quebec city...

  3. I've never made it to Quebec - looks like a place not to miss.

  4. One of these days I need to get to Quebec. Great stamp choice for today.

  5. A very pretty city, I remember from my trip to Canada in the 90ies.
    I didn't know that it is UNESCO world heritage, great to protect the nice old city by this.

  6. beautiful stamp, esp since it has something to do with railways!
