Norman Brockway (1841-1936) Bellows Falls, VT. A famous rifle-maker of heavy target rifles and machine rest rifles from about 1867 until along in the late 1880’s when he fell off the roof of the house he was building at Lake Sunapee, NH and injured his spine so that thereafter he was unable to make rifles himself. Brockway's cottage was located near Rowe's Landing on the eastern shore of the lake. This is the only map that he is known to have produced. A rare pocket map of Sunapee Lake.
