We used to make things in this country; #291 Coward's Boat Factory, 1909

Another small boat building business that has completely disappeared. No address given in Kingston but I expect you would have found him on the waterfront. The model shown in this ad demonstrates he has embraced the new gas-powered speedboats.
British Whig (Kingston, ON), 13 Jul 1911 "Industry To Go? Alfred Coward, Boat Builder - inducements to move to Iroquois."

Future Issues of the Rod and Gun magazine show Alfred Coward of Iroquois, ON as a boat builder who uses engines manufactured by the Wonder Manufacturing Co (USA based).
