1947 Alexander Graham Bell 274


My Collection
Description: 1947 Alexander Graham Bell 274.
In 1947 Canada commemorated the centenary of the birth of Alexander Graham Bell with a stamp focused on his invention of the telephone. The design shows a winged female figure standing on a globe showing a map of North America. Bell was born in Scotland, and emigrated to Canada. He invented the telephone during a visit to his parents’ home in Tutela Heights, Canada in 1874. The first successful demonstration of the telephone was over a telegraph wire between Brantford and Paris, Ontario.
Text found on stamp: Canada, POSTES, POSTAGE, ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL, 1847 - 1947, 4 CENTS.
