    Howdy everyone,
    I thought I would share some photos of an old Peterborough paddle or two that I got with my canoe. It's my understanding that these paddles were sold by Peterborough to the canoe's first owner when he bought it in 1939-40. The largest of the three paddles has the Peterborough logo about half way up the handle. The paintings were added to them some time in the 1950s by one of his daughters. Enjoy!

    Beautiful-- thanks for sharing. Interesting that family pets can manage to position themselves in pictures... the stripey tail is charming too.
