The photo shows a crew from  Portobello's Eastern Amateur Rowing Club competing in a Regatta at Portobello in 1955.

This is one of two photos that Archie sent me in response to a question asking where another 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.
