2011 Calendar

This year's calendar features a small sampling of the many means of enjoying Wisconsin's waters.

In the main picture, Lorenzo M. Newman, a wealthy entrepreneur from Chippewa Falls, poses in suit and tie with his catch, a sizeable muskie. Details abound in this picture. A closer look at the boat reveals a small stack of wood used for feeding the steam-powered engine, an oar and fishing pole stored on top of the canvas awning, a small electric lightbulb dangling near the center, cushioned seats for passengers, and a carved wooden owl mounted on the front.

The second photo, taken around 1905 on the shores of Lake Delavan, is of four youngsters seeking shade beneath a beautiful old canoe.

For just $5.00 (plus shipping and handling), we'll send you the 22 x 28-inch calendar rolled in a tube, or stop by Map Sales to purchase your copies. (CAL2011)
