Western Canada Cottage Map PaddlePaddle_West_Grey/Blue_27.5x10 $54
Say the word 'canoe' and it conjures up an instant reaction with people who have vacationed or frequented anywhere on the waterfront. Our 'Western Canada Cottage Map Paddle' art print offers those that have spent time on the waters anywhere west of the Manitoba/Ontario border the chance to hang a memory of those times on their walls. You can also hang a piece of history while you're at it, like this antique map from 1904 spanning the region from the Manitoba border in the east to the shores of the Pacific in the west.
The inspiration behind our 'Western Canada Cottage Map Paddle' Art Print
Having spent most of my life cottaging in the Muskoka region, like many, the word 'canoe' brings back memories of the gliding quietly across the water. The paddle profile on this piece is my blade of choice (from the Swift Canoe Co.). As a former cartographer, also am quite fond of antique maps. I love watching people scan the background of this, looking for their lake. So for many reasons, this piece remains a longtime favorite of mine.
