Kingston Rowing Club at Practice (1902)

A delightful day out on the water as Edwardian rowers mess about on the River Hull.

Non-Fiction 1902 4 mins Silent


This record of exercise and tomfoolery on the River Hull at Stoneferry won praise from the Hull Daily Mail when it screened at The Circus variety theatre on Anlaby Road. The ladies present may have particularly enjoyed the mocked-up 'accident': one rower tumbles flamboyantly out of his skiff into the water and swims wildly to shore - his wry grin, wet t-shirt clinging to his chest, is priceless.
