A vintage rowing ephemera collection started in the 70’s by a collegiate rower who has continued to row as a master, inspired the concept of The Rowing Store. Many of the images have been used in products. We thought we would share an image a week with as much history as we have about the image. If any of our readers have more information to share or simply want to comment, we welcome your input. With Easter week passing, we thought it appropriate to begin with an Easter image. The left side is printed with “German American Novelty Art Series No. 1220 4 Des., Printed in Germany”and was mailed in 1912.

Have you ever encountered a wing nut that was last tightened by a person at least five times as strong as the person sitting there now ??? the call goes back to the coxswain…and to the launch if nothing works in the boat…for a “tool.” …metal tools don’t always work and can slip and damage the boat or your fingers…it’s frustrating…delays practice…and is so easily solved!
This handy, hand-made tool is an adaptation of one was found in our boathouse years ago. Best yet is that it is made from repurposed broken yard tools and it floats! Get one for all your boats!
