Regatta and Pier

Thank you to Archie Young for allowing me to reproduce this photograph of rowing boats competing in a Portobello Regatta over a century ago.

This is one of two photos that Archie sent me in response to a question asking where an early photo, showing a crew in a similar boat might have been taken.  Please click the link below to see the other early photo (a black and white slide) and to read about it.

Here is the other photo that Archie sent to me in response to the question about where the early photo might have been taken.  This one is a more recent photo, taken in 1955.
