The Rowers of Vanity Fair

From Wikibooks, open books for an open world
Jump to: navigation, search

This book provides an annotated set of caricatures from the British weekly Vanity Fair (1868 - 1914), who were featured as rowers or who had a connection with rowing though featured on some other basis. They are listed chronologically by their rowing years, not by the date they happened to appear in Vanity Fair. As noted in the Introduction, the initial set by Wiki author Wat Bradford are of fifty-nine men who rowed in the Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race or at the Henley regatta, or appeared mainly in connection with rowing, but Wiki contributors are welcome to add others who have a rowing connection (such as Thomas Brock); please just be clear what it is.
