Interesting blog post on tumplines

For anyone interested in the historical description and use of tumplines for portaging, check out Isaac Walter's recent post on his blog, The French in Wisconsin. He has posted images of various tumplines in the American Museum of Natural History collection as well as a few historical paintings featuring the tumpline portage carry.

Isaac's decorated paddles were featured here in a post back in September 2012
