Both are at the Alberta Aviation Museum, in Edmonton, Alberta.

Roy, I recently found a collection on Flickr posted by a Canadian gent named spotter tim that included at least 24 Norsemans (20 on floats and 4 landplanes).
If you search Flickr for his name I'm sure you'll find a few more treasures, I did.
But be aware, he has over 1700 photos posted (mostly Canadian registrations) and will take a while to go through them.
I spent a whole night recently going through it all, but then I also found a lot of landplanes too.
It was well worth it, he also had scads of seaplanes, Beavers, Otters, Cessnas, Pipers, CL-215/415s, Beech 18s, some Grummans and a few rarities that surprised even me.
(A piston powered Pilatus Porter on floats ?)
Most of the pix were taken from the 1970s until recently, there were some older though.

Hi Bill, thanks for turning me on to Spotter Tim. I spent 5 hours last night and only looked through about two thirds of it. There is a host of Norseman photos along with some goodies and rarities to say the least.
Its well worth spending the time on.

Cheers, Roy.

Glad I could turn YOU on to something Roy.
I spent several hours there myself and I didn't bother with most of the airliner pics.
There are many treasures indeed.
