    Information on Thompson from the Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thompson_Brothers_Boat_Manufacturing_Company. You may also want to use the "advanced search" function above on the right to look for discussions of Thompson canoes, and check the back issues of "Wooden Canoe", which are available through the online store. Back issues are listed here: http://www.wcha.org/journal/Index to Wooden Canoe.pdf

    No records relating to Thompson canoes are known to exist, but someone may jump in here and tell you the possible model of your canoe.

    Being a full-time canoe restorer from Wisconsin, I see my fair share of Thompson canoes and boats.
    I suspect that your canoe is a pre-1949 Thompson Ranger. Three photos can't confirm that, but my suspicions can be qualified...
    I restored one a couple of months ago, I have one ready to come into the shop shortly, and I sold one unrestored recently.
