The Mysterious Boatman (detail)

Possibly Hobbs, Montreal

circa 1906

The boatman's shirt, hat and paddle all place him in a more recent century. He might be a depiction of Henry Kelsey, who traveled through Prince Albert by river in 1692; or of Peter Pond, a founding member of the North West Company who established a trading post in 1796. Please see the preceding notation.
