The panel has a bevelled edge. Arthur MacCallum in conversation, 5 November 1971, “The railway bridge is at Parry Sound, and the sketch was done while waiting for the Doctor and my brother James to arrive by launch from Go Home. This was a trip in May or June, to French River. I presume that they went into Byng Inlet on the way.”
