Historic Canoe Catalog Reference Guide

These pages contain selections of historic canoe advertising from the Golden Age of Wooden Canoes. A few of the companies represented here are still in business, but to our great loss, most are not. The legacy of wooden canoes lives on with present day builders - as found in our Builders & Suppliers Directory. Some of the magic from the wooden canoe's heyday is captured here.
