Photo: Boat on a Stick

Forestry was a critically important industry in Canada's early days, and the situation in the Ottawa Valley was no exception. Ottawa itself started out as a lumber town, and today the trees stand thick and green along the river. In Pembroke, they've paid homage to this time by putting a boat on display at the town's waterfront--specifically a Cockburn pointer boat, the sort used by lumber crews along Canadian rivers from the mid-19th century all the way up into the 1960s.

This one, however, is made of steel. Because it's a replica, you see.
