Historical Canoes | Early Missionary in Northern Canada (1/14)

This is the first of a series of vintage postcards depicting canoes from the early to  mid-twentieth century. In case you’re wondering why I decided to start collecting canoe postcards, it arose from my husband’s and son’s  passion for building wooden strip canoes from scratch. As always, the majority of this collection depicts scenes from eastern Canada but I’ll also be sharing some that I’ve collected  just for fun!
