This classic postcard features Farley Mowat as a young teen (1935) in Vagabond, his family's canoe, which he learned to paddle and sail in.
''...we had a love affair, the canoe and I. She was a part of me.''
Now one of Canada's most internationally recognized and award-winning authors, Mr. Mowat donated his believed 1920's Peterborough Canoe Co. canoe to the Museum in 2006.
