    This is an early Lakefield , or possibly Peterborough lake queen. No model or serial present. A good identifier would be the copper (not brass) stem bands. I started the restoration in April 2021 and am fininishing in the next week or so. This was a great starting point, no rot, no breaks, no wood working. Here are a few pictures.
