Togo 2014, S.S. Moyie Sternwheeler.
The stamp was issued in the series "Steamboats".

The stamp shows the S.S. Moyie Sternwheeler in Kaslo. The mountain in the background is Mt. Kaslo 2'125 m (right) of the Purcell Mountains. The names of the summits at the left are unknown.

The S.S. Moyie was built in 1898 and steamed on Kootenay Lake until 1957. It was the last passenger carrying sternwheeler operating in Canada. It was sold to the town of Kaslo and restored. Today it is a National Historic Site of Canada and the world's oldest intact passenger sternwheeler.
