Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream . . .

This week’s Sepia Saturday prompt led me to seek out row boating photos from the archives of Flickr Commons.


Above a lass named Mary Price is out for a row with a young man near Eastpoint, Florida. Florida Memory dates the image between 1898 and 1912.7680378546_b7f30e7234_z (1)

The Australian National Maritime Museum is looking for help dating and placing this photo. Anyone who can help, please click here.


Above is the Stanford University crew rowing on the Hudson River between 1900 and 1915. The image is from the Library of Congress.

  1. The unknown photo is interesting, obviously all the crowd were looking at the scull that was over toward the middle of the river…probably winning the race. When and where still to be determined. I always thought rowing was a university thing, but apparently many clubs existed just for that pursuit.


  2. I would think the second photograph has to have taken somewhere on Sydney Harbour or perhaps on the Hawksbury River, as Sam Hood was based in Sydney.
