Historic Paddle Photo: 1907 - With Gun and Guide

Here are some more photos of paddles and canoes taken from the 1907 publication of With Gun and Guide by Thomas Martindale.

The guide on the far left is holding up a beast of a paddle - no doubt for stand up paddling...

The well-dressed "Sports" pose with their paddles in the bow. The figure on the left seems to have a paddle with a small bobble grip while the gentleman on the right has a more flattened, Northwoods style handle.

The scene is similar to a sketch made nearly a quarter century earlier in Thomas Sedgwick Steele's 1882 publication, Canoe and camera : a two hundred mile tour through the Maine forests.
