WD Chapman Brockville Ontario Lure Ad

This great WD Chapman Brockville Ontario Lure Ad comes to us from 1883. While this antique lure ad shows the WD Chapman Allure bait it also gives us some other clues to putting together the Antique Fishing Lure Puzzle. We see that it uses the name WD Chapman & Son indicating that his son Byron was with the company, and actually had been for some time by now. But the most important feature is that it shows Brockville, Ontario as well as Thersa, NY for factory locations. This Forrest and Stream ad from 1883 helps us so that when we see a antique Chapman fishing lure marked with Brockville we know it dates to 1883 and before.
