Adults and children watch as a rowing scull is lowered into the water. Unfortunately we are not quite sure of the location, but our guess is by the Skinnery, Atlas Wynd on the banks of the River Tees, Yarm… early 1900s.

People enjoying the river at Yarm on Sunday afternoon, as part of the 2016 Yarm Gala. Amazing how the dress-code has changed, but people are still fascinated (over 100 yrs later) at people ‘messing about in boats’, in exactly the same place!
The actual location is at the foot of Chapel Yard, the crowds of people
(in both) are shown stretched between Silver Street & Atlas Wynd.
