wonderful shape to this wooden fish trap – it is hanging inside a block house at Ste. Marie. I have been visiting this historic site over the past 45 years. I first visited it before the current reconstructed site had been built. The original mission was built in the 1640s. In 1649 the mission was burnt to the ground during a war between the Wendat of the area and the attacking Iroquois.

Ste. Marie Among the Hurons web site

It is located about 100 miles due north of Toronto and is well worth a visit.
