Many thanks to Robert Ferguson for this awesome Titanic cover posted from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada (a special place in the Titanic history, which we'll discuss later).
On 5 April 2012, Canada Post unveiled five commemorative stamps to mark the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. The collection includes four domestic 61-cent stamps that feature both the bow and stern of the Titanic, emphasizing the size of the massive ship.
In addition, an international $1.80 stamp (affixed on the cover) features a full-colour image of the Titanic sailing on calm waters and incorporates a map marking the ship’s path makes up a set.
Why is Halifax so special?
Located on the eastern coast of Canada, Halifax has one of the most moving and intimate connections with the Titanic disaster, playing a key role during the tragedy's aftermath and becoming the final resting place of many of her unclaimed victims.
Three Halifax ships were involved in the grim task of recovering victims - many of whom were laid to rest in three of the city's cemeteries. Rows of black granite headstones, each inscribed with the same date, April 15, 1912, are a stark reminder of the disaster.
Now, let's enjoy this Titanic Theme Song "My Heart Will Go On" by Celine Dion back in 1997!
