I happened on these cheery little fellows in the Museum of New Brunswick, and they made me wonder..."What would the original Bangor Tigers* think of SUP(Stand Up Paddling)?"
*Penobscot River Log Drivers were often referred to as Bangor Tigers, especially when headed out to more distant drives. A few tales of their esteemed skills:
Bangor Log Driver Navigates NYC's Hells Gate with Fanfare.
Log Drive on the Connecticut
Since the small models were from New Brunswick, they probably reflect St. John log drivers, but they look ready to SUP. This statue by Charles Eugene Tefft depicts Penobscot River Drivers (and serves as a reminder of cooler days.)
