    I agree, WOW,

    Dan, was that a "posed" pic or did they/you actually move the car/canoe some distance like that?

    It made at least one 45 mile trip (from summer quarters to winter storage) that way... maybe more? I suggested to Carl it might be safer to turn the whole rig bottom side up and go by water instead...

    There is another picture of the interior of the factory from 1942 at http://www.maine.gov/sos/arc/graphics/canoes.jpg and the one at http://moblog.whmsoft.net/shared_im...1fd68016_2996894bf8e1d7e87bc393cdafd3ab5c.jpg has a more modern one. There are also some good overview images at http://www.old-town.org/vertical/Si...ds/{1656DC14-6E92-43CB-B7F3-ACBCD557164B}.JPG of the old factory and at http://www.old-town.org/vertical/Si...ds/{D15C9C89-54E4-473B-BC02-841990CDCE68}.JPG of the new one.
