Hey Loup!

When did you pose for the picture? The fellow in the middle looks vaguely familiar...

Some things seemed fairly priced at 1 beaver, others seemed a bit over-priced. On the other hand, the firearms seemed dirt cheap.

I love reading old price lists from the era.

Martin. If only! It must be a good feeling to know that your painted image will outlast you.


Hutch. Me too Hutch.

Gorges. Yes I thought the same. Some items were marked up 100%, other items at 600%. The price structure apparently based on the prices the furs sold for in Quebec, but I still find that hard to get my head around!
