Historic Paddle Photo: Schmidlin Family Reunion - Grand River

Many thanks to fellow Torontonian Stephen F for pointing me to another historic photo showcasing some paddle designs. The wikipedia page of Paris, Ontario has a photo featuring "A turn of the century family gathering on the banks of the Grand River near Paris, Ontario."

The woman in the centre of the image is holding a paddle with a full view. The original image is out of focus but the it looks to have a relatively tiny ball grip compared to the size of the grip. Unfortunately couldn't find any more details about the photo, but the filename is save as SchmidlinFamilyGathering-ParisON.jpg.

Sending in any historic photos featuring paddles is always appreciated!
