This map of Lake Memphremagog is the work of Marie A. Kuhnel. It is drawn in black and sepia ink and lead pencil, and is enhanced with blue and brown watercolours. The drawing and calligraphy are precise and very fine, which testifies to the high level of skill of the artist, of whom only the name is known. The map contains details of the hydrographic network surrounding the lake on both sides of the border and names the important villages in the area. Notably, Sugar Loaf Pond appears to have previously been known as “Concert Pond”. Unknown donor.
