Strange happenings on the Avon

PhotoTake a look at the larger version of this action packed Regatta Day in 1921.

It’s a stunner. One rowing crew seems to have broken the light barrier, and are so fast they’ve turned into a blur.
There are some stern dudes with serious moustaches in the foreground.
And, most oddly, there is a man riding the Avon on a contraption that looks like an exercycle on waterskis.

Another gem from our collection of images.
