Historic Paddle Photos: Grand Trunks Railway Guide for Temagami

The 1913 Grand Trunk Railway travel guide entitled, Timagami, a peerless region for sportsman, canoeist and camper has numerous pics of old time guides from this famed canoeing wonderland.  Here's a favourite I cropped from page 14 - a nice shot of a haul of small mouth bass. Paddle and wannigans proudly displayed in the photo too.

The back cover features a photo of "A Timagami Guide" dressed up sharply with his paddle resting against his shoulder taking in a hefty drag of tobacco. Looks like quite the character!
