According to Old Town, this was a custom made model MC canoe - "we only made couple of..". The canoe was shipped to Henry Morgan & Co in Montreal in 1912 (see following shipping notice) and spent most (if not all) of its life on the waters of Lake St Francis just west of Montreal. It was professionally restored in 2007 - (ie. recanvassed and painted in original colour, seats recaned, ribs and gunwales restored, etc). It's a beautiful craft ready for a new owner to paddle it into the second century of its life! Truly a rare canoe and a collector's item.
