FURS, FORT TEMISCAMINGUE
In an essay on the Abitibi Fur Brigade the artist and writer Arthur Heming (1870-1940) describes how the furs were transported from the Hudson Bay post on Lake Abitibi to Lake Temiskaming. The Abitibi Fur Brigade was the last of the once famous canoe flotillas. They operated till the early twentieth century.
