    Do you know if this “Salmon Angling on the Margaree” poster is for sale anywhere on the Internet? I’d love to give it as a gift. Thanks!

      Not that I’m aware of, but I’d recommend getting in touch with the Nova Scotia Archives ( since the poster is from their holdings. They may be able to help you!
