This two-shot film is something of a hybrid. The first shot, showing crews passing through crowds with their oars in hand, comes from an unidentified University Boat Race film (not 1897). The second, with markedly different frame line, is believed to be of the Cambridge crew in practice, taken by Birt Acres, probably in March 1897, from the stern of the 'Hibernia'.
