    I'm wondering if someone can repost the wonderful picture of the woman in the canoe for the add of the 2017 assembly and possible give some info about the photo?

    The image is from a postcard in my collection. I chose it for the ad due to all the accouterments shown that fit with the Assembly theme.

    The card is dated 1903, beyond that all I know is what is shown in the card itself.

    Dan,

    Thank you, I ask because I have the canoe in the postcard. I have not been able to indentify the maker but assumed it was from the Charles area like the postcard says. I am missing the front seat that was made to be removeable and hung on bronze brackets mounted to the bottom of the inwale. This is a great photo of what I need to make and helps a lot. I did find the canoe just outside of Boston.
