Historic Paddle Image: 1905 Northeast Carry Penobscot River

Another historic paddle image found on This one published by G.H. Graves (from a William H. Rau negative) featuring some sports and guides at the Northeast Carry on the Penobscot River. Another party of canoeists is seen faintly off on the distance. Clear shots of the large bladed paddles and canvas canoes are visible.

If the photo looks familiar, it is because it appeared in various publications. I posted this very same image back in 2017 (link here). It appeared in the 1907 publication, With Gun and Guide, by Thomas Martindale.
