The Washington Times Daily - - Business -

OT­TAWA | Canada Post un­veiled five stamps Tues­day to mark the cen­ten­nial of the sink­ing of the RMS Ti­tanic and the re­cov­ery of hun­dreds of vic­tims by four Cana­dian ships.

Four do­mes­tic-rate stamps de­pict the White Star liner’s im­pres­sive bow and stern.

An­other in­ter­na­tional-rate stamp shows the ship sail­ing on a calm ocean with a map trac­ing its maiden voy­age across the At­lantic Ocean from Southamp­ton to New York, and the spot 375 miles south of New­found­land where it struck an ice­berg and sank on April 15, 1912.
