Friday afternoon, while at the Lakefield, Ontario, Antique Show, I happened upon some early Peterborough Canoe Co. paddles and oars. All had some great, early decals. One, a full-size cherry paddle, had a version of the Peterborough decal which I had never before seen; see pic below. Readers may recall a Forum thread posted back in early Nov. 2013 in which the sequence and possible dates of use of Peterborough decals was discussed: http://forums.wcha.org/showthread.p...o-decals&highlight=dating+Peterborough+decals. To my surprise, I believe there is an even earlier version which now must be added to that train. This newly discovered version bears the words "Peterborough, Canada" within the familiar red oval. This closely resembles the predecessor logo of the Ontario Canoe Company, and I now believe is likely the very first iteration of the Peterborough decal. Previously, I had thought that a decal bearing the words "Peterborough, Ontario" might have been the first. I'm now thinking that one comes second in the string, with several amended versions that follow later. Here, then, is a photo of the newly discovered PCC decal, along with the forerunner Ontario Canoe Company example, and the Peterborough decal ("Ontario") version which, I now believe comes second in line. To once again place the series in a suggested proper sequence, I will follow this post with another showing the six iterations that took place between 1892 and the 1950's. Because I can only post six photos at a time, I need to follow this one with another. Captions have been added to assist with the explanation of the changes to look for.
