Antique Harvard Paddle

Another expired EBay listing lists photos of a 59" paddle with a beautiful patina.

The grip has an engraved "H" for Harvard and the blade is branded with "F. Brodbeck Boston". Some research on the WCHA forums revealed that F. Brodbeck was one of the "Charles River" builders in Boston, active between 1898 to 1930 so this paddle likely dates to this time.
