Findlay, Ohio, Canoe Club
The canoe portrayed on this die-cut tobacco collector's card is the Eclipse, which was owned and sailed by M. V. Brokaw in the 1880s.
The International 10 square meter decked sailing canoe was the successor to the 16-30 class of the American Canoe Association.
The canoe with sail number 29 is Solitary Snipe, and the canoe with sail number K31 is Wake. The latter was built and sailed by Uffa Fox, a famed naval architect and canoe sailing enthusiast who won the International Sailing Canoe Trophy on several occasions.
Writing on the back of this photograph identifies the canoe sailor as Austin Metze, a member of the Knickerbocker Canoe Club.
