1883 Peterborough Canoe Patent Drawing Art Print

Early Canadian settlers depended on functional and durable forms of transportation. John Stephenson began to build and sell canoes in the late 1850s from his Peterborough, Ontario shop that met this criterion. His iconic cedar strip design became popular with canoeists for its sturdy build, handling, and beauty. His pattern survives today and is widely considered a Canadian work of art.

Our "1883 John Stephenson Peterborough Canoe" art poster features a patent drawing of his canoe and an equally class paddle pattern.
