A newspaper cutting entitled 'Women's Championship' about Margaret Barff winning the 1929 Women's Sculling Championship from Putney to Mortlake. She beat Amy Gentry, E. Kirton, T. Innes and D. Slark with a time of 25 minutes, 17 seconds.
Margaret Barff started rowing in the early 1920s with the Ace Rowing Club. In 1927 she was a founder member of Alpha Womens Rowing Club, being Captain and Secretary over the ensuing years. She rowed mainly from Tom Green's Boathouse at Barnes Bridge on the River Thames. She rowed in the Women's Amateur Sculling Championships many times, and in 1929 beat another well known sculler, Amy Gentry. In the early 1930s she was diagnosed with a heart condition and gave up racing but continued to coach and contribute to the womens rowing scene for a further 50 years.
