Description
Copy black and white photo of the Henley Royal Regatta course in 1908, during an eight race (possibly taken during the 1908 Olympic Regatta, if not at the 1908 Henley Royal Regatta).

Copied by George Bushell & Son of Henley.
Shows a view down onto the regatta course near the finish line, with two crews of eight rowing towards the finish being watched by spectators.

George Bushell came to Henley in 1919 and took over the task of taking photographs of Henley and its surroundings from two predecessors, called Marsh and Marshall. Bushell died in the 1960s but his business was carried on by his son and grandson. It is his grandson, also called George Bushell, who has donated this important collection of photographs and glass plate negatives to the Museum.
