I should really let one of our Canuck friends have this one, but what the heck.
It's the Boeing-Canada Totem from 1933.

Dang it! I knew this one. The time zone difference gets me again. Plus the fact that I was up a bit late last night and the slept in a bit this fine Sunday morning.

What a cracking sharp image from 1933!

Indeed. There are several more where I found this one (including the cockpit view) and even in higher resolution. Check out the Vancouver archives web-site here. The items CVA 99-2339 through CVA 99-2341 are photographs of the Totem.

You should go through that whole series as there are several other photos of Boeing flying boats under construction.
I downloaded the bunch of them a couple months ago and was going to use at least one for a Quiz Question, ah well.

Sorry Boss, I spend a lot of late hours (when you're in Nod) surfing & downloading.
Sometimes things like this one slip past.
