Hi Ingrid,

The propeller looks like it is from an Avro Anson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avro_Anson). They a relatively common as the wooden propellers were surplused when metal propellers became available. They turn up frequently on kijiji.ca and ebay and generally seem to sell for between $600 - $800 depending on condition. Hope that helps

Thank you for the information

there are several references on this site to s&a aircraft, winnipeg, including threads my sis and cousin were involved in a couple of years ago....i'd like to pick up the conversation....i inherited from my grandfther, leonard short, an illustrated notebook of the factory procedures used in the manufacturing of the s&s props..i also own one from the training plane of mitchell franklin, formerly of st martin's, new brunswick....i'd also like to find out more about granby aviation (have pics of the manufacturing of props and wooden fuel tanks from there too) and s&s products, montreal - subsequent companies my grandfather and his children (including my dad, doug short) were involved with....my grandfather was mentioned in an article entitled, 'canadian propeller maker' in aircraft and airport, november 1948...i'd love to track down an original copy as my photocopy is virtually illegible....some pictures, some notes but still so many questions!

Fabulous. We get a lot of inquiries about S&S Propellers and have very little information to offer. I'd be interested in uploading a catalog here if you have something useful in that regard.
