As the population of Upper Canada grew in the 1790s following the influx of the United Empire Loyalists, the fertile land mass along the north shore of Lake Erie became a prime area of new settlement. The Western District of Upper Canada: the Development of Postal Communications and Postal Markings, 1800-1850, which won the Horace W. Harrison Grand Award at BNAPEX 2021 Virtual exhibition, is the 113th volume in the BNAPS Exhibit Series. The postal history of the Western District is shown in this very well researched and beautifully illustrated volume.
