Often vintage postcards showcase canoe related themes. Here's a postcard showcasing an "Indian of the Great Lakes" with a decorated paddle. Some etchings are visible around the neck and edges of the blade with some painted decoration added in the middle.

I'm an avid canoeist and general "outdoorsy type" guy with a bit of an artistic side. Recently started this hobby of making custom canoe paddles after my disappointing experience with most commercial brands. This site documents various styles of single blade canoe paddles I've made or researched as well as other canoe related info I've stumbled across on my internet wanderings. Hope you enjoy your visit.
