                                           JAMES B. TYRRELL/NATIONAL ARCHIVES OF CANADA/PA-03706

This photo from the National Archives of Canada was taken by J.B. Tyrrell on their famous 1893 trip down the Dubawnt River and eventually and barely to Churchill. It is featured in the book Across the Sub-Arctics of Canada. Six members of the party are shown near the shore. The caption says "Ptarmigan Rapid, Dubawnt River, Esker in distance July 1893/Dubawnt River, N.W.T." That rapid name is not familiar to the HACC but it certainly looks characteristic of lower Dubawnt rapids. It appears similar to the one coming out of Hinde Lake on the lower river. Maybe some of you sharp-eyed readers can help with info?

Swedish canoe. A recent business trip to the spectacular city of Stockholm found canoes right at hand in the heart of this multi-island city. These ladies are paddling Grumman clones, which are all the rage in Scandinavia. Canoeing is popular in Sweden, much of which looks like northern Canada with better cars.                                                                            MICHAEL PEAKE
