The Peterborough Canoe Company was formed in 1892 in Peterborough, Ontario. According to Ken Brown, author of The Canadian Canoe Company & the Early Peterborough Factories, the company was formed just weeks before the Ontario Canoe Company burned down in May 1892. Col. James Z. Rogers, formerly president, general manager and one-third owner of the Ontario Canoe Company owned 4% of the new company and became manager in 1893. The company continued to build the wide-board, cedar strip and cedar rib canoes much like the Ontario Canoe Company had before them.
This canoe model is a model of their classic style from the past.
