Ehzerbrug (on the right) is a pre-fabricated truss bridge (Callender-Hamilton bridge) in the village of Almen, that crosses the Twentekanaal. It was completed in 1946.

Another self-adhesive souvenir sheet from Canada Post. These stamps are heavily embossed, so much so that the dinosaur shadows show up on the scan of the back of the sheet. They also include some metal foil enhancements to make them shine. The booklet versions of these stamps also have a foil finish but without the embossing, they don't quite look right.
