Someone out there in Blogville has decided that Thursday should be the day to feature old stuff - most likely Tillerman's idea as his blog is where I've picked up Throwback Thursday as a regular feature. This seems to something worthwhile to occasionally emulate on Earwigoagin (when the spirit moves).
Recreational rowing is the oldest modern amateur watersport, with clubs proliferating in the U.S. just after the Civil War. Boathouse Row on Philadelphia's Schuylkill River is a neighborhood of river-front rowing clubs. One of these clubs on Boathouse Row, Vesper Boat Club, founded in 1865, and featured in this following video, is probably the most storied rowing club in the U.S.
