J. H. Rushton
J.H. (John Henry) Rushton began building boats in 1875 in Canton, New York. He quickly became well known for his Rob Roy-style decked canoes and pulling boats.
This undated catalog is circa 1908-1910, based on the Old Town Otca model offered only in 16- and 17-foot lengths. The 18' Otca first appears in Old Town's 1911 catalog.
This catalog is dated ca. 1884–1885 based on the companies move from 1 Cortlandt Street to 178 Broadway between 1883 and 1884, and by comparison to an 1886 J. H. Rushton Catalog.
This page is from the 1911 catalog of Chicago hardware retailer Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett & Co. The canoes featured are the Hudson River model (built by the Detroit Boat Company), the Indian Girl model (built by J. H. Rushton, Inc.), the house brand REV-O-NOC model. While the cut for the REV-O-NOC model looks like that of the Indian Girl, neither the lengths offered or dimensions are that of J. H. Rushton.
