Old Town 112901

Hi Rolf,

Old Town 112901 is a 16 foot CS (common sense or middle) grade Yankee model canoe that was completed August 1933-March 1934. It has open spruce gunwales, red Western cedar planking, oak decks, thwarts and seat frames and a keel. It was originally pained orange with a black hairline stripe and was shipped to Macy's in NYC on March 13, 1934. The scan image is attached below-- click on it to get a larger image.

This scan and several hundred thousand others were created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) and others. A description of the project to preserve these records is available at http://www.wcha.org/ot_records/ if you want more details. I hope that you will join or renew your membership to the WCHA so that services like this can continue. See http://www.wcha.org/wcha/ to learn more about the WCHA and http://www.wcha.org/join.php to join.

It is also possible that you could have another number or manufacturer if this description doesn't match your canoe. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions.
