To honour this historic occasion and add to the warm sincerity of Canada's welcome, the Post Office Department issues three special commemorative postage stamps to coincide with the tour of Their Majesties throughout the Dominion. The stamps were printed in two colours each. Portraits of Their Royal Highnesses, The Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret, from photographs taken by Marcus Adams, Limited, London, England.
